At NobleCare we would like to applaud a father from Hertfordshire who spent two years of his spare time creating a video on autism. Alex Amelines created the animation for his son’s school, after realising how difficult it was to explain autism to primary school children.The video, which is called ‘Amazing Things Happen’ explains that “people with autism are not ill or broken, they simply have a unique view of the world” and encourages children to accept the differences between people.
There have even been calls for the video to be shown in all schools. We would agree with the sentiment
The Royal College of General Practitioners has also included the animation in their Autistic Spectrum Toolkit for professionals and carers.
