Aspergers and the Media

One of the TV show’s I watch regularly is NBC’s Parenthood. Parenthood follows the challenges and daily lives of  Zeke (Craig T. Nelson) &  Camile Braverman (Bonnie Bedelia) Braverman and their adult children.  One of on-going story-lines revolves around Adam (Peter Kraus) & wife Kristina (Monica Potter) and the challenges they face raising Max (Max Burkholder) who has Asperger’s Syndrome.  This season Max enters middle school and has decided to run for student body president.   Watch the reaction of Max’s peers as his speech progresses.
