An Animated Introduction to Asperger Syndrome
Living with Asperger’s Syndrome can be difficult, and explaining it to others can often seem more of a challenge than coping with AS itself. This short, simple and accessible film explains through a series of lively animations what AS is, what it feels like and how it can be helped, in a way that is both informative and easy to understand.
Created by children in conjunction with professional animators, this highly entertaining film concisely summarises the basics of AS, enabling viewers of all ages to gain a real insight into the condition in less than half an hour. Covering everything from common talents of those with AS to skills and activities they might find more difficult, the film looks at life as an Aspie from a variety of different perspectives. Using a winning combination of humour and frank discussion to explore AS, the DVD comprises a main feature film, which is complemented by an array of vox pops, interviews, slideshows, and other additional material, documenting how the film was made and further exploring what AS means to different people.
This insightful and innovative DVD will be of interest to everyone wishing to learn about AS, from children in schools, to families of those with the disorder and professionals working alongside them. It is an ideal first step towards understanding Asperger’s Syndrome.
