Autistic Spectrum Disorder

A follow up to my previous post about Autism. Here is another fascinating documentary that focuses on the importance of understanding that everyone views the world in different ways. Exclusive footage of the process of diagnosing Autism in the UK is also shown.

Understanding Autism (mental disorders awareness)

It is currently the last week before my exams so I haven’t been able to write a proper blog post. Will be posting properly again soon! However, here is a link to a brilliant documentary on Autism by Louis Theroux. It includes very honest accounts about what life is like for families in the USA who have children with Autism. The documentary also follows the amazing children and staff at the inspirational Developmental Learning Center in Warren, New Jersey. I understand that if you are not from the UK then this link might not work- apologies!
