  • To focus on individuals who's lives have been changed by these dogs
  • Show how current social environment still has trouble with acceptance
  • To inform about autism, help change opinions & eliminate stigma
  • To inspire those with autism and their families
  • To pose the question: Does autism really need to be cured?



The proposed documentary is the story of autism service dogs, of the amazing lives that they touch, and of societies views on the world of autism. The social environment which we live in has rules, but it is in constant flux, always changing as cultures mix, as do individuals with disabilities.

This 70 minute film will show conversations with volunteers and trainers, as well as respected individuals in the autism community. But most of all, it will introduce audiences to families who’s lives have been directly affected by autism, and in turn, by these special dogs.

Weaving together information, as well as visually showing a respectful portrait of the way these dogs help in daily life, we will create a positive picture of the autism community and the special relationships inside of it.  

NOTE: This film is already IN PRODUCTION.  In part, the funds would be used for post-production services and to help get the film out into the community through festivals, etc.  

Community Benefit

Because of the high prevalence of autism, every community is touched by it. Many times when there are individuals with these autism service dogs, there can be misunderstandings as to why someone who clearly isn't blind or in a wheelchair, for example, would also have a need for a service animal. There is also a very stereotypical view of autism held by many because of the limited projects that accurately portray it. By making everyone in a community more aware, this leads to greater acceptance, and through acceptance the world becomes a better place.
