Excellent representation of amazing people

Representation and inclusivity of this group of special needs young adults is fantastic and even as an adult made me think a lot about what challenges are faced by the individual and their families. The challenges are heartbreaking at times but then the happiness the characters feel (and as a viewer I felt for them) was ten fold. These characters are overcomers. Their advocates are amazing people too. There is a lot of foul language (f***), a lot! And descriptive sexual conversations, especially with Violet. I guess it’s all real life stuff but I would be uncomfortable for my child watching it. I’d say 16+ or maybe even 18+ if you’re a more conservative home.

View of living on the spectrum

Amazing!! This show is so true to life! Anyone who knows someone or actually is on the spectrum, would appreciate this show. I highly recommend watching it. It has a 16+ rating which I think is appropriate. Absolutely one of the best shows/series I’ve seen!
