If you have any comments, it would be great to hear them. Details about how to add a comment are on the right hand side of this site.

This is a great way to inform peple about Apserger's. The combination of human voice nd animation works very well, and is a powerful medium. I would find this a useful tool in my Diversity training sessions.

I just now ran across this wonderful film. I'm showing it to my 11 year old Aspie. I'd like to know if it would be okay to show it at his school when they have Computer Time. I can be reached at lunarmom [at] cox [dot] net. I thank you. A great piece of work!

Hi Khat. Glad you found us! It's absolutely fine for you to show the film at school - it's great that it's being used. It would be really good to hear from you what they think to it, any feedback would be appreciated. Many thanks

See your video here:

The more people who see it, the better off we are, right? (I have three children with HFA / Asperger's, I have a vested interest)

I would like to say thank you for this video. I do not have Asperger's, but my 8 year old son does. This has helped me to understand him a lot better and get on better with him more.

I loved this film. My daughter has ASD rather than Aspergers, but much of it rings true for her as well. I can only hope that she will ever be as articulate as the people who made this film, but sometimes people with Aspergers give me a small insight into what is going on in her world, and I love being able to understand her, and to understand the differences in people.

Very informative, i am sure that when my daughter is old enough to understand her Asperger's she will seek great comfort in this video, thank you very much :)
