I was recently contacted by a member of wpsu.org, a public media group in Pennsylvania, that asked me to share their YouTube playlist all about autism. As of the date of this post, they have 7 videos to share about autism. Included in this list is an interview with Temple Grandin and two videos titled “Understanding Autism” that feature experts and real-life scenarios. The description for the video “Exploring Autism” invites the viewer to
“Hear experts explain the history of autism, the challenges that children with autism face as they grow up and strategies that parents can use to encourage their children reach their full potential. “
They also focus on adults on the spectrum in the video “Scott Robertson: Life on the Spectrum – Conversation from Penn State”. It’s important to remember that autism does not only affect children even though so often it is referred to as a children’s epidemic. If you have the time to check out the videos, you might find some of them helpful and/or interesting.
