I made this video to give my family an idea on what A.J needs.. The words used in this video are not my own. They have been adapted from the book - Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew - by Ellen Notbohm.
I hope this video helped show them what to expect and it's not that bad. He is just unique..
I also wanted to add.. It's getting harder to get pictures of my son.. I take about 50 shots to get one picture of him sort of looking at the camera.. His eye contact is the same as well. Just seems to be more noticeable now that he is older.
That is amazing!!! What a positive way to give your family information about autism and how they can better relate to your son.
I did a video for Alex when he was first diagnosed (a way for me to come to terms with it), but I will share that in a new thread.
A part of my family comes from two different cultures. Cultures where Autism is not the norm because they don't have the same kind of medical care there verses in modern cultures. I thought the video will help them understand. I'm so glad you liked it.
That is an amazing video! I am lucky to have understanding people around Daniel who either know a lot about autism already or are willing to read up. But I am bookmarking this to re-use the words you did if ever I come across someone who could benefit from this.
