2008 Alliance for Community Media Hometown Video Awards Winner - Documentary: Public Awareness, Non-professional
Autism is a mental disability that impairs a person's central nervous system and how it operates, particularly in sensory awareness. In effect, autism impairs a person's social awareness and communication skills.
However, it's also a complex disorder, meaning no two cases are alike, and because it can't be physically detected, is often ignored by unaffected humans. Although boys are four times more likely than girls to have autism, it knows no social or ethnic boundaries.
What was originally a project for my electronic art class became my first television program giving viewers an overview on what autism is, how it affects people, how other people respond, and the attitude taken towards it.
I hope this program enlightens you on one of the most prominent disabilities today.
