Atypical: a typical portrayal of autism? [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
In conjunction with the rise in prevalence of diagnosed autism spectrum disorders (ASD), there has been a boom in TV and movie characters who sit somewhere along—or in close proximity to—the autism spectrum. These media portrayals may have negative consequences, such as the reinforcement of stereotypes and stigma; however, they might also contribute to raising awareness about, and public understanding of, the condition. Launched on Netflix in August, 2017, the new comedy-drama TV series Atypical places Sam Gardner (Keir Gilchrist) centre stage, an 18-year-old high-school student with ASD.
