Autism and Asperger’s Q & A Video #1

This is a follow up video Sophia did after asking for questions for her Autism and Asperger’s Q & A in her 5 Myths About Autism video .

I printed all the questions for her and she answered them first by hand and then answered them by memory (or read them) in her video.

She had a great response from the YouTube Community, Home Educators group and Facebook Family and Friends.

We will be doing another of these next month as they will be a series.

We are all very proud of her.

Feel free to check out her other videos as well on her 8 yellowcats YouTube channel


5 Myths About Autism Video

Below is a video Sophia did after seeing someone being bullied about being Autistic.

She decided she wanted to do something to help people understand Autism a bit better so that people will stop being mean and just accept people as they are.

This video got a great response for questions and was shared on several blogs and Facebook Groups for Home Education, Autism Parenting and Autism and Aspergers.

The follow up video; Autism Q & A #1, will be posted as soon as she finishes reading her questions and writing her answers.

We hope you love this one as much as we did. Please feel free to leave comments and questions as she will be continuing her series of Autism Q & A.

We had some great feedback from many of those on our resource pages, including Bill Nason of Autism Discussion Page, Samantha Craft of Everday Aspergers and Sue Larkey.

Here is one quote from Sue Larkey (see resources page for link.)
