Today, we spend our life talking, chatting, hanging out etc. We are a lot more socially active than the previous generations. But there always are exceptions.
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a developmental disorder which includes a wide range of symptoms, skills and levels of disabilities.
People with this disorder have difficulty communicating and interacting with others. They have limited interests and activities, not socially active, not even at school or work. They do not share their feelings or experiences. Studies say that everyone in 68 children has Autism Spectrum Disorder.
This 12 year old girl “Holly” who is an autistic, stepped forward and revealed her big secret.
Holly had been dealing with issues in making conversations and interacting with her fellow mates at school. She was questioned and led down by her own classmates. She couldn’t do anything about it. But then one day she decided to let her fears go.
April is Autism Awareness Month, so she decided it would be perfect timing to reveal her big secret to the world she had been ignoring so far.
What she shared shows how strong she is. Watch the video to know what she has to say to the world.
Seeing her efforts, the NATIONAL AUTISM SOCIETY, decided to make a short film on Autism, starring Holly. This video is an initiative to give people better idea how life is for an Autistic and how normal innocent interactions can easily become overwhelming for those with autism.
