Often people with autism can have trouble finding work, but one school in Los Angeles is helping students on the spectrum take advantage of their talents and reach new heights. Exceptional Minds is a three-year program for young adults that trains students in the art of visual effects, animation and graphics. The goal is to place students in jobs in the entertainment industry. Graduates of the program have worked on projects for Marvel Comics and Game of Thrones among others.
