This 50 minute DVD presents an interesting autobiographical look at Laura Nagle, an adult living with Autism. In this video, Autism is shown from the perspective of neuro-diversity rather than disability. That is, Laura offers a frank discussion of how people with Autism may be different from others - both physically (due to differences in brain structures) and in the way that they process information from the world around them – but she focuses on their abilities and special talents, rather than their disabilities. The DVD also contains 3 extra segments – a 5 minute stand-up act featuring Laura’s offbeat humour, a slide show of Laura’s art, and Laura’s alternative definition of autism. Closed captioning and video describe options are available for individuals with hearing and visual impairments.
