Description Edit

The video was given at an all school assembly during Autism Awareness month. The intention was to give a basic presentation to the elementary age children about Autism. My hope is that this can be used to shed light on Autism and to spread Autism Awareness. I believe that if we educate our younger generation about Autism, they can be more tolerable of the challenges and differences that a child with Autism faces. It takes a village to raise children, and I believe that teaching them at an early age about people with all kinds of differences, including Autism, will open their minds as to why people look and act differently. My hopes are that the village that surrounds my son, who has Autism, will accept him, not bully him and love or like him for the wonderful person that he is and works hard to be every day in a world that is a daily challenge with all of its noises and demands. The number of people with Autism is climbing. If we educate our kids at a young age, we can change the culture surrounding Autism. There is no "cure", it is up to us to help their peers understand the idiosyncrasies and teach them how to deal with a person that doesn't know how to communicate.
