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

Movement is a short story told from the point of view of a teenager with a future form of autism as she watches her parents discuss possible changes for her future. Heavy themes of individuality, disability, and social acceptance are woven in seamlessly and never become overbearing. While one side of her parents' dilemma is clearly favored in the case presented, it's done in a way to prompt further consideration rather than coming across as the obvious and universal better choice and the other side has valid points illustrated throughout the discourse. The little touches of science fiction in this story are used just right to add layers and allow the author to tailor the narrative to have more impact and smoother flow.

Movement is a beautiful, thoughtful tale that packs an incredible amount of depth into its short eighteen pages. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
I've been seeing a lot of stories about children on the autism spectrum, but it's nice to see one told from the child's perspective, rather than the parents. In "Movement," Hannah's parents are considering a new medical breakthrough that would make her a "functional" person, but would completely remove all chance of becoming an sort of artist or savant, and she is already devoted to her ballet. The ending is almost tear-jerking. I have to give Fulda a lot of props for writing such a positive and well-researched representation of a child with autism.

Available as a free audio production from Escape Pod.

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.
