Can we love against the odds? is a question that anyone might ask. But the question becomes more complicated when autism enters the equation. This problem is explored in Independent Lens’ Autism in Love, premiering on PBS, Jan. 11, 10-11 p.m. (Eastern). Life-Wire News Service attended a screening sponsored by Thirteen/WNET at The Greenbelt Recreation Center on December 15th and posed questions about the film and about relationships where disabilities are present. The panel, hosted by Bill Lacurtis, Manager of the Greenbelt Recreation Center, included Scott Salinardi, COO of Lifestyles for the Disabled; Chris Marchionne, Executive Director of PCCS (Person Centered Care Services), Inc.; and Gina Piersanti Gioe, Program Director for AHRC Inc.‘s Programs Without Walls Intitative.
