An introduction to a new and unique program for siblings and peers of children with autism. 'Understanding My Friends With Autism' is a program designed for children ages 5--10, to help them understand why children with autism act the way they do.
The program is driven by a video made by a young girl called Charlene who has autism. She explains why children with autism like her frequently stim, have meltdowns, walk away from others for no apparent reason or find it hard to have a conversation with others. At specified times, there is a break in the video where the participants can perform simulation exercises to help them experience first hand how annoying sensory issues can be.
