How Creative Expression Can Help Kids With Autism

Life for children on the autism spectrum has many challenges, parents testify in this excerpt from Animating Autism, by Mt. Carmel Films. The documentary follows seven children as they collaborate to create a short animated film. “The way to unlock any child’s brain, autism or no autism, is through using creative expression of some form,” says the therapist Maude Leroux. “The child’s job is to play in whatever medium is available.” You can watch the entire film through Vimeo on Demand.
