In conjunction with World Autism Awareness Month, we at EAP Malaysia came up with an interactive video to raise autism awareness. Throughout the month, many people took part in this activity and got a glimpse of how a child with autism may feel like when we try and communicate to them. Watch the following video to see the different reactions from the participants.
The aim of this video was to show the public that individuals with autism may not understand or perceive our communication as we would want them to. It may sound completely foreign to them when we speak, give them instructions or communicate our expectations of them. As Temple Grandin would say, “If they can’t learn the way we teach, we teach the way they learn“.
Let’s play a part and #lovesomeonewithautism today.
