Asperger Syndrome: A Different Kind of Mind

Synopsis
Narrated by Simon Baron-Cohen, this DVD presents viewers with the opportunity to see and hear about the nature of Asperger Syndrome from children and adults themselves who have AS, as well as from their family members and school teachers.
It introduces the viewer to the special interests, speech and language characteristics, social interaction difficulties and cognitive challenges of people with AS. It also highlights the positive developments that have taken place in recent years, within schools particularly, towards a better understanding of, and more effective provision for, children with AS. Doctors from the Autism Research Centre in Cambridge talk about diagnosis.
