Although he is handsome, bright and talkative, Adam also has Asperger's Syndrome -- which accounts for his social awkwardness.

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

What challenges does Beth face as she develops a relationship with Adam? What things will she have to be willing to overlook or deal with on a regular basis? How does her love and acceptance of Adam change him?

What concerns do her parents have? Are these realistic? How can our expectations of others, including people with developmental, physical or mental challenges, either limit or enhance the lives of those individuals?

Asperger Syndrome is a form of autism. You can learn more about this condition from the National Autistic Society.
