Autism Talk TV 15 - Fly Away - Interview with Janet Grillo and Ashley Rickards
Posted on Monday, August 15 @ 11:39:05 EDT by
Fly Away is a film by Emmy award winning producer and newly cemented director Janet Grillo. I sit down with both Janet and her upcoming star Ashley Rickards. We talk about the film and Janet's experience as a mother of an individual on the autism spectrum. I enjoyed watching the movie when it premiered in Beverly Hills, California.
Fly Away is a pretty big deal. It's been playing practically everywhere including a limited run in theaters in major cities around the US. And Ashley's new show, "Awkward." is a big hit as well.

Nice...I watched the movie. The movie focus I think was the hardship imposed on the single parent. The end seemingly, or I could be reading in, suggests that placement is best at handling an autistic child. Though I can understand the autistic girl in the movie was glad at meeting people like her, institutions are only equal in their predictable dysfunctions. They tried to smooth that one over by saying the institution was open at all times to parent observers, which is ideal. Cameras could help as well, but the best institutions are the ones in which the humans have been removed…LOL. The script writer was right up there with "my sister's keeper," an exceptionally well written film to be sure.
Have you thought about what you want adidas f50 adizero people to say about you after you’re gone? Can you hear the voice saying, “He was a great man.” Or “She really will be missed.” What else do they say? One of the strangest phenomena of life adidas football boots is to engage in a work that will last long after death. Isn’t that a lot like investing all your money so that future generations adidas predator cleats can bare interest on it? Perhaps, yet if you look deep in your own heart, you’ll find something drives you to make this kind of contribution---something drives every human being to find mercurial vapor superfly iii a purpose that lives on after death. Do you hope to memorialize your name? Have a name that is whispered with reverent nike mercurial soccer cleats awe? Do you hope to have your face carved upon 50 ft of granite rock? Is the answer really that simple? Is the purpose of lifetime youth soccer shoes contribution an ego-driven desire for a mortal being to have an immortal name or is it something more? A child alive today will die tomorrow. A baby that had the potential to be the next soccer shoes store Einstein will die from complication is at birth. The circumstances of life are not set in stone. We are not all meant to live life through nike total 90 laser to old age. We’ve grown to perceive life3 as a full cycle with a certain number of years in between. If all of those years aren’t lived out, it’s a tragedy. A tragedy nike ctr360 maestri fg because a human’s potential was never realized. A tragedy because a spark was snuffed out before it ever became a flame. By virtue of inhabiting adidas soccer cleats a body we accept these risks. We expose our mortal flesh to the laws of the physical environment around us. The trade off isn’t so bad when you think nike mercurial orange about it. The problem comes when we construct mortal fantasies of what life should be like. When life doesn’t conform to our fantasy cheap soccer shoes we grow upset, frustrated, or depressed. We are alive; let us live. We have the ability to experience; let us experience. We have the ability to learn adidas f50; let us learn. The meaning of life can be grasped in a moment.

No one is more aware than I am of the political consequences of the action I have taken. louis vuitton discount [www.designerbagfactory.com] is tempting to take the easy political path, to blame this war on previous administrations, and to bring all of our louis vuitton outlet [www.designerbagfactory.com] immediately -- regardless of the consequences, even though that would mean defeat for the United States; to desert 18 million South Vietnamese people who have put their trust in coach handbags [www.designerbagfactory.com]; to expose them to the same slaughter and savagery which the leaders of North Vietnam inflicted on hundreds of thousands of North Vietnamese who chose coach outlet online [www.designerbagfactory.com] when the Communists took over North Vietnam in 1954. I would rather be a one-term president and do what I believe was right than to be a two-term President at the cost of seeing chanel bags store [www.designerbagfactory.com] become a second-rate power and to see this nation accept the first defeat in its proud 190-year history. discounted chanel bags [www.designerbagfactory.com] realize in this war there are honest, deep differences in this country about whether we should have become involved; that there are differences to how juicy couture bags [www.designerbagfactory.com] should have been conducted. Tonight, I depart from that precedent. What I ask is far more important. I ask for your support for our brave juicy couture outlet [www.designerbagfactory.com] fighting tonight halfway around the world, not for territory, not for glory, but so that their younger brothers and their sons and your sons can have a chance to grow up in gucci handbags outlet [www.designerbagfactory.com], and freedom, and justice. The answer of the enemy has been intransigence at the conference table, belligerence at Hanoi, massive military aggression in Laos and Cambodia and burberry bags for sale [www.designerbagfactory.com] attacks in South Vietnam designed to increase american casualties. This attitude has become intolerable. We take burberry wallets outlet [www.designerbagfactory.com] not for the purpose of expanding the war into Cambodia, but for the purpose of ending the war in Vietnam.zxj
It is often said that louis vuitton monogram have nine lives, that they are lucky enough to escape from danger again and again. Here is a science fiction tale about how one such lucky escape by a cat led to a discovery that was able to change the course of louis vuitton Antheia. The problems stemming from the discovery also make interesting reading. Somebody someday will make a study of the influence of animals on history. Among them, Mrs. Graham's cat should certainly be included in any such study cheap louis vuitton online. It has now been definitely established that the experiences of this cat led to the idea of quick-frozen people. We must go back to the files of the Los Angeles newspapers for 1950 to find lv monogram handbags. She suspected no connection between the two events. The cat was not to be found until six days later, when its owner went to fetch something from the deepfreeze. Much as she loved her pet, we may imagine that lv monogram bags was more horror-than grief-stricken at her discovery. She lifted the little ice-encased body out of the deep--freeze and set it on the floor. Perhaps it is unfair to pull all the responsibility on one louis vuitton outlet. Had such a thing happened anywhere else in the country, it would have been talked about, believed by a few, disbelieved by most, and forgotten. But it happened in Los Angeles. There, and probably only there cheap lv monogram, the event was anything but forgotten; the principles it revealed became the basis of a hugely successful business. The Zeritskys were businessmen, first and last. Anyone who had the fee could put himself lv monogram purses away for whatever period of time he wished, and no questions asked, The ironclad rule was that full payment had to be made in advance. Law enforcement agents, looking for fugitives from justice lv uk, found no way to break down this system, nor any law which they could interpret as making it illegal to quick-freeze. Perhaps the truth is that they did not search too diligently for a law that could be made to apply lv us. As long as the Zeritskys kept things quiet and did not advertise or attract public attention, they could safely continue their bizarre business. ZHC
As night approached, the snow fell less plentifully, but it soccer shoes black became intensely cold. Absolute silence rested on the plains. Neither flight of bird nor passing of beast troubled the perfect calm. Throughout the night Aouda, full of sad forebodings, her heart nike soccer cleats stifled with anguish, wandered about on the verge of the plains. Her imagination carried her far off, and showed her innumerable dangers. What she suffered through the long hours it would be impossible to nike mercurial yellow describe. Fix remained stationary in the same place, but did not sleep. Once a man approached and spoke to him, and the detective merely replied by shaking his head. Thus the night passed. At dawn, the half-extinguished nike mercurial orange disc of the sun rose above a misty horizon; but it was now possible to recognize objects two miles off. Phileas Fogg and the Squad had gone southward; in the south all was still vacancy. It was then seven o'clock. The captain, who was soccer shoes cheap really alarmed, did not know what course to take. Should he send another detachment to the rescue of the first? Should he sacrifice more men, with so few chances of Saving those already sacrificed? His hesitation soccer pro shoes did not last long, however. Calling one of his lieutenants, he was on the point of ordering a reconnaissance, when gunshots were heard. Was it a signal? The soldiers rushed out of the fort, and half-a-mile adidas f50 adizero white off they perceived a little band returning in good order.The prairie, across which the sledge was moving in a straight line, was as flat as a sea. It seemed like a vast frozen lake. The railroad which Nike Mercurial Vapor supperfly ran through this section ascended from the south-west to the northwest by Great Island, Columbus, an important Nebraska town, Schuyler and Fremont, to Omaha. It followed throughout the right bank cheap soccer shoes of the Platte River. lzle

Finally watched this for the first time. I think this movie is closer to the mark than most, but the "perfect" portrayal of parents of kids on the spectrum really grates on me. On a really good day, I can react well to a meltdown, but I don't have really good days as often as I'd like, and certainly not as often as they show in the movies.
(In particular, I remember having an ice-cream-cone scene with my son, similar to the one in the movie. Let's say it neither ended as well nor as quickly as the one portrayed there, and my son wasn't the one at fault.)
I've learned to be a much better parent than I started out being, and I understand that cinema needs a hero, but somehow people need to come to the understanding that parents of kids with disabilities don't have to be "perfect" any more than our kids have to be "exceptional."
