Discover first-hand what it’s like to live with Asperger syndrome.

Autism expert Simon Baron-Cohen, PhD, a professor of developmental psychopathology and director of the Autism Research Centre at the University of Cambridge, narrates Asperger Syndrome: A Different Mind, a illuminating video that takes viewers inside the lives of 5 young people with Asperger syndrome (ages 5-22), their families, and their teachers. This 29-minute DVD offers parents, teachers and other school staff a fascinating look at the challenges of living with AS, including:

  • Speech and language difficulties
  • Issues with social interaction
  • Issues in playtime and leisure time
  • Difficulties in school

Offering real-life footage of children in a variety of settings, this informative introduction to Asperger syndrome highlights some of the key characteristics of those with AS, including a sensitivity to noise, the tendency to focus on small details, a strong desire to stick to a routine, and difficulty interpreting social language and cues.  It also focuses on the positive developments of understanding AS, especially within the schools.

Teachers, students, health and childcare workers all will benefit from this introduction to Asperger syndrome.
