What We Learned from this Video:

  • Autism has no obvious physical identifiers.
  • Nobody truly knows what causes Autism.
  • Autistics are normal people; they just behave slightly differently.
  • Autism is a massive spectrum of behavior.
  • Autistic people lead completely normal lives, and simply want to fit into everyday life.

Autism is a neural disorder. It has no identifiable cause, but makes people act differently. Autistic people do not want to be treated differently; they just want to be treated like everyone else. For more information on Autism, please explore our video resource library.
