The Autism Society honored writer and producer Robia Rashid at its annual AutFest.
Along with 15 other projects, the film festival celebrated Atypical, the show Rashid created. Variety has more about how the festival honored “autistic filmmakers or helped spotlight those on the autism spectrum.”
At the 2017 Media Access Awards, Rashid accepted the WGA West EVAN SOMERS MEMORIAL AWARD for her work on Atypical.
Rashid has written and produced a lot of great TV comedy, including The Goldbergs and How I Met Your Mother and Atypical.
She was introduced by Atypical actress Amy Okuda.
“It’s an amazing time for stories of inclusion and diversity. We need stories like this more than ever and I just feel so honored to be receiving this award for telling this story.”
