What an inspiration! Daryl Hannah opens up about her autism.

As a little girl, Daryl Hannah showed signs of autism: she would easily become fixated on certain objects, and would frequently rock herself back and forth. That, paired with an inability to connect with others socially, led her mother to bring her to the doctor to see what was going on. He recommended medication, and even institutionalizing her. Instead, her mother decided to pull her out of school for a year and handle things her own way.

Hear from Daryl Hannah firsthand on what life was like as a young girl, and how she’s handling her autism now.
