'autism reality' is a moving interview-based documentary film about autism that shows a new and refreshing side of the issue.

Alex, that's was touching, it made alot of sense too.
I also liked the idea of how you had the NT's view on autism and a autistic view of it.
Although I do wish it could of been longer, but besides that, it is definelately work watching. :)

Alex, the vid was VERY good.

I particularly related to you talking about the level of exhaustion you can experience as a result of socialising. I think many of us can relate to that.

As a mother, I also felt very proud of your mum - who obviously rose to the many challenges she faced with the education system, backing you up and supporting you in those early years. That is a great thing, and not easy to do, when others - through ignorance - view ASD's in kids as a moral and not a developmental issue.

Wow...that was so... relatable.

I've half a mind to just whip out my iPhone and play that video to everyone who asks me those questions (THOSE sorts of questions - I'm sure most of you know what I mean!) about myself from now on.

Nice job, Alex. :)

(Insert applause here.)

Nice job on the vid.I remember reading an article in the Red Deer Advocate a while back about Temple Grandin having visited Red Deer and giving a speech.I think I posted that article somewhere in the autism news section.
