The Boy Inside

We laughed, we cried, and we learned at the MLC viewing on April 25 of “The Boy Inside,” a moving documentary about Adam, a young boy struggling with Asperger’s Syndrome. Between scenes, Dr. Neal Sarahan, Challenger Program Director, moderated a panel which included Jacob and Matt, two Monarch students who have been diagnosed with Asperger’s. Through humor and insight, Dr. Neal and the two gentlemen shared their own joys and struggles as compared with Adam’s in the documentary.
