Guzin Kurun is a mother of two twin boys with autism. She created a show called “Surprisingly Complicated” that accurately portrays what it is like to raise kids with special needs. “I think autism is shown in the media as either savants having an ailment or as a disability that is very dark. I think there’s a need for ‘Surprisingly Complicated’ because special needs families are not represented on television.
