Lovely little story about an autistic girl in the future told in first person. This is a 2012 Hugo Nominee for Short Story.

This is a short story but has so much in it that it has the impact of a full novel.

Not only does this story give us a new perspective on those that see the world differently but allows us the opportunity to understand that sometimes we may fail to communicate properly but mostly because we view the world differently.

The title Movement not only describes the main character's prime outlet and her view of the world but says exactly what it does. It moved me.

Heartwarming, a great short story of human self-determination and how different does not equal wrong when it comes to the variety in our species.

The story is very well written, and purports to give an insight into the autistic mind. The sci fi aspects are relatively minor.

Movement is a well written short story about Hannah, a silent girl whose parents are exploring ways to "fix' her. Movement is her autistic focus; whether it be the flow of glass down the pane, the crustal plates shifting beneath her feet, or the billowing of clouds. Hannah notices what the rest of the world does not. The world sees Hannah as rather shallow, but her story exposes the depth of her perceptions. Her mind is "attuned to the dizzying flow of seconds and centuries." In a way, Hannah is mature beyond her years - "it should not be surprising that, on the way from what we are to what we are becoming, there should be friction and false starts along the way." Hannah's unresponsive condition to her family's chatter is not because she does not understand or does not hear, but because words feel insignificant compared to the movement going on around her. In "Movement," Hannah shares her story, and as in all good stories, evolves through the telling. She has decided something profound by the end, because Hannah, too, is moving.
