Excerpt: April 2 is World Autism Day and the National Autistic Society in the U.K. has released a powerful video, allowing viewers to get a sense of what it is like to be autistic.
The video is titled “Can you make it to the end?” and takes us through the experience of a young boy with autism, as his mother takes him through a busy shopping mall.
Autism is a spectrum disorder which affects the way sufferers communicate with other people surrounding them and how they make sense of the world. People with the spectrum are literally bombarded with sensory information and have trouble working their way through it, with children often appearing to be misbehaving.
