Printer-friendly version
December, 2012

This DVD was designed to help young people with Asperger Syndrome and related disorders to build self-awareness, self-esteem and self-advocacy skills.

The DVD is 30 minutes long and emphasizes the strengths and abilities, personality and humor of a middle school student, a high school student and a young adult in college. They discuss their difficulties with social interaction, communication and organizational skills. Their candid insights into the longing and isolation they feel offer a window into the Asperger’s experience. They discuss how they found out about their diagnosis and why they chose to share or not share that information with others.

The DVD also comes with a guide that offers suggestions to help the viewer understand the video content.
