Lanier Weed

The first part of iTYPE: Students with Autism highlights the words of Lanier Weed, a woman with autism in her early twenties. She explains the need to be seen as competent and gives reasons why others do not see her as such.

The second half of the film is a dialogue with others in the Jacksonville, Florida, area who type to communicate. The groups presented vary in age; the youngest typer is a mere 8 years old.
