“We’re not crying you’re crying!” On July 9th, Netflix released the final season of the acclaimed series Atypical. Exceptional Minds has been a partner on the series since the beginning of the production with Sony Pictures.

For four seasons, we have watched Sam and his family navigate the world’s challenges in a coming of age story through the lens of autism. Figuring out who you are, what your relationships mean and how to function as a family hits home for many of the readers of Mindshare and the family that is Exceptional Minds.

We will miss Atypical, both for its therapeutic benefits and for the work that has come to the Exceptional Minds Studio. Enjoy season 4 and please make sure not to skip the credits, that amazing artwork is done right here at EM!

Also check back on our social pages soon! We have a surprise collaboration with the show that will help Exceptional Minds raise money so we can keep our mission going.

Exceptional Minds, a California non-profit of the year, is an academy and studio preparing young adults on the autism spectrum for careers in animation, visual effects, 3D gaming, and other related fields in the entertainment industry. Exceptional Minds provides critical technical and work readiness training customized to help its students achieve their full artistic and professional potential, creating a new pipeline of talented artists, and fostering inclusive hiring practices. Exceptional Minds and its partners are building a future where neurodiverse perspectives are vital to the advancement of a more empowered and inclusive society.
