A Missed Chance For Inclusivity?

Pop singer Sia caused quite a stir last week, when she announced the release of her new film, Music, which cast a neuro-typical teen in the role of a non-verbal Autistic teenager. This didn't go well with the Autism Spectrum Disorder or ASD community, but Sia is standing by her decision. We look at why the trailer has received so much backlash, from the community it was meant to represent.
