Thank you for making this documentary. I hope one day the world will better understand about autism as a whole.

I liked it, but as someone else said, it was a bit short. But still good!

Alex-
My mother went through the same thing that yours did with schools and teachers treating me just as badly as the kids, being singled out for abuse. They didn't know what was going on with me, though. No matter what school I attended I was always picked on, always the weird one. Well, they didn't have any other name for it back in the 70s or 80s.

i really appreciate your film and the honesty and compassion that went into making it.

Thanks Alex! your description of how draining it is to maintain a semblance of "normal social interaction', something that many people I know don't recognize....not aware of...just see me interacting...at some times better than at others and fail to understand the many factors that feed into the ability to socially engage at any given time. Temple Grandin gave an excellent synopsis of the various aspects that may facilitate and/or detract from ability to relate effectively at any given time.

Understanding the Spectrum aspect of autism, especially in reference to Asperger's, I find important......too many people I know actually choose to disbelieve my official diagnosis.I will forward this to my Facebook site in an attempt to gain understanding for myself and others.

greetings

now please do not take this the wrong way but this is not stating anything that is new or realy profund. there are many stories like this on the internet - it is however one of probably not many that are on utube.

this seams to be describing what people who do not realy ( with the exception of you your pairents and temple grandin ) know what they are on about think of as sutism - they are in fact describing canners syndrome for the most part or their own ideas about labeling - this ( the lables ) is a load of rubbish sorry as they are clearly ignorant on the subject.

you may find it more usefull to make a documentry on autism to keep the parts where people knew what they were on about and include stuff by tony attwood and others from collages and uni's as well as people with autis and aspergers syndrome - this would be very interesting to see and you are very capable and equal to the challange .....smile

child hood expiriances of not being wanted do stay with us however and this is the important lesson to bring out from this. unfortunetly as with all aspergers people this does not leave us and it has to be squashed in adult life because in actuality many people do want us they just have funny ways of showing it.

many thanks
a-R

Thank you very much. I have a daughter who is being asessed, and may be autistic, she is 6 years old. I appreciated your video because it supports what i already believed. My daughter is different, she reacts different, learns different, however that is not wrong, just maybe takes a different approach and more support to learn.

There is an article in Yahoo online news about autism. I just posted, in the comments, a link to this video. It seems that as much as people are wanting to know more about the subject, there are still just one or two slots that autistic people fit into, in most people's minds. This video is great for showing a lot beyond the stereotypes.

The Yahoo news article is at http://news.yahoo.com/s/time/20100403/h ... 9197723000

nothing is wrong with learning differently.

I never really did well in school; I had to really push myself beyond anything; I made it to the honor roll finally in my last semester of high school; got a B average...and I wasn't impressed.

Reason being: I'd put everything--everything--into getting my grades up, and a B didn't reflect that.

Everyone said I should go to college; I dropped out after one semester, never went back, and have no regrets.

Who said, though, that I haven't furthered my education?

The way I see it, the world is my classroom; every day I ask questions, and read up about history, and business; make connections about the past that everyone else seems to have overlooked. It's one of the most pivotal systems I have for learning business, and making sure my own succeeds. And so far, btw, it is :)

Y'wanna know something even funnier? The more you study and learn, the more trivial many other things you get used to become...like, I barely ever watch TV anymore; I find most of it idiotic, and insulting to my intelligence.

Trust me...if you find the right way of learning, you'd be surprised how much your mind expands and takes in information, and all the connections you wind up making :)
