Notes on the Accessibility of Atypical

Notes on the Accessibility of Atypical:

As part of Access2Film’s Sensory Microphone I’m learning accessible filmmaking techniques.

In Atypical I’ve found it interesting due to inter-accessibility.

The show is shot mostly from Sam’s own perspective (thus preferable to some other autism-based shows) and the subtitling matches that. The words he says and thinks are articulated in full sensory bloom – the overload is captured and demonstrated realistically at times, and the text captures that.

Also, when music is playing in the background it displays the artist and title – further allowing those with hearing impairments to research the music and interact with it on their own terms.
