A Hopeful Video

My wife came across this great video recently of a 17 year old girl with autism. She is very articulate and explains what it’s been like to have autism. I’ve really been wondering a lot lately about what might be going on in the heads of these kids with autism. You hear so many stories of autistic kids having so much more in their heads than we give them credit for. We just assume that if there are communication difficulties, then the kids aren’t absorbing anything. But as you’ll learn from this video, these kids are picking up quite a bit.

So if you’re a parent of a child with autism, this should give you some great hope and encouragement. Even if you have no immediate connection to autism and are just interested/curious about it, then check this out.
