A Teen’s Guide to Understanding and Communicating with People with Autism is a primer on how individuals can better relate to those with Autism. The goal of the film is to help typically developing teens learn about Autism and thus increase acceptance of their autistic peers. Autism experts, people with Autism, parents of people with Autism as well as teens and adults not on the Autism spectrum give us their insights in concert with real life examples, dramatizations, graphics, interviews and narration. A Teen’s Guide to Understanding and Communicating with People with Autism helps us to identify with what it may be like to think and behave like an Autistic person and as a result, reduce fear, increase compassion and encourage understanding.
