The Leprechaun’s Wife

The Leprechaun’s Wife is portrait of an extraordinary woman living on the autism spectrum. Sondra Williams was misdiagnosed as schizophrenic and “mentally retarded” for much of her life and institutionalized for many years. She has a unique way of processing the world that can be hard for others to understand, yet she has been married for 28 years, and has raised 4 children who have also been diagnosed with autism. Her rare ability to clearly articulate her experience of autism has made her a sought-after national speaker and tireless advocate for the rights of others on the spectrum, even as she continues to battle her own personal obstacles.
