Autism Awareness Day 2017

The ninth annual World Autism Awareness Day is April 2nd. This short film by the The National Autistic Society shows us how Holly, 12, experiences the world and becomes overwhelmed when she isn’t given enough time to process information. The video was produced so that Holly could reveal her autism to her classmates and talk about it openly for the first time.
