I found this first video to be very moving and captivating. It is called "fixing" Autism and is made by this man in honour of his daughter how has Autism. It demonstrates not only the struggles she goes through but the struggles they go through as a family. I think this is a great video for informing people about the reality of Autism for the person and their families. It is a great video for Autism awareness. I think anybody who watches it would be affected by this man and what he has to say.
The next video is from the perspective of different people with Autism. It has been made in honour of Autism Awareness month and its main focus is for these people to let the world know what it’s like to have Autism. It shows a range of different people who are all different on the Autism spectrum. It is their way of reaching out and telling the world what life is like for them.
This next video is the day in the life of Ryan. Ryan was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 2. This video is made by his older sister how explains common signs and symptoms, the visible signs he showed and the frustrations in which a child with Autism can experience. We are able to see Ryan and the way in which he communicates and acts. She explains the challenges for living with someone with Autism and the effects it has on her younger sister who is also interviewed by her.
This video shows an Occupational Therapist working with a young boy with Autism. It shows them working with an Ipad learning to draw letters. I chose this video as it shows a type of intervention in which an Occupational Therapist like me would do with a client with Autism.
