Autism - DVD
Around 10,000 schools across Australia received a DVD aimed at helping school children understand, accept and support children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. A hard copy of the DVD is being posted to primary, secondary, public and private schools across Australia during August 2012
"What are you doing?" is a short film, created by Autism Awareness, which aims to teach school aged children about acceptance and understanding of their peers with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
The film addresses some of the fears children may have about ASD, answers their questions and helps show them how they can be a great friend to a classmate on the autism spectrum. The film includes enlightening interviews with the brothers, sisters, cousins and friends of children on the spectrum. These friends and family members share their thoughts and experiences on what it is like to share their life with someone on the spectrum.
