In this Ability Life Solutions Video Favorite made by autistic individuals, the question “what is autism?” is explored and explained from the perspective of those who actually have it. The film dispels some common misperceptions about autism, like that it is a bad thing or that it is caused by a genetic defect (the truth is researchers are still unsure about what causes autism).
The film asks us to consider autistic individuals as normal members of society who are different and unique in their own way. There is a broad spectrum of characteristics and capabilities within autistic individuals, just as there is for everyone else. As the narrator suggests, “life is like one big show. Everyone has different parts, but we’re all part of the same play.”
