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.
Movement is a beautiful, thoughtful tale that packs an incredible amount of depth into its short eighteen pages. Highly recommended.
Available as a free audio production from Escape Pod.
Her parents see her as unhappy and unresponsive, rather than thoughtful. When a possible new cure is available, they discuss with the doctor, each other, and Hannah whether they should attempt it, raising the question: is it worth destroying who she is to make Hannah conform to everyone else's desires?
The story is told entirely from Hannah's perspective, as she thinks about her world and her parents and her self, and tries to communicate her own wishes. The ending seems ambiguous at first, but on reflection, it's really not.
Recommended especially for parents, or anyone who wants some insight on autism.

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.Published on June 15, 2014 by 5B5A9AA41B894BB1A604F9958B1EE159
The story is very well written, and purports to give an insight into the autistic mind. The sci fi aspects are relatively minor.Published on June 5, 2014 by Ken Baumann
