How do you teach your autistic children to survive without you? Don't Forget Me follows three Moroccan families with children on the autism spectrum whose parents are struggling to educate them in a country where children with disabilities do not have a right to go to school. The documentary was inspired by Jackie Spinner's two Moroccan-born sons, who also are autistic and now living in the North Park neighborhood of Chicago. A discussion with Spinner, a journalist and former Baghdad bureau chief for The Washington Post, will follow the 26 minute- documentary. Children are welcome
