A great quick way to learn about autism is short video’s here are a selection of my favourites.
Inside our Autistic Minds
Did you catch Chris Packham’s latest documentary – Inside our Autistic Minds? I loved it, the show had four very different autistic people create video shorts to help highlight their experience. The best way to learn about autism is to listen to autistic people and I though this particular documentary really highlighted a variety of experiences genuinely driven by autistic voices. You can find the documentary on iPlayer please watch the clips on this link. I personally connected most to Murray’s film as I have a non speaking autistic son. Below is a clip from the show.
