As counselors, we may speak to many parents who want to understand why their child plays differently and what they should do about it. I love that this article encourages parents to be accepting of their autistic childs different way of playing and how they can still make playtime a learning experience without trying to change the child or make them feel like what they are doing is "wrong". This is some great information to share with parents and caregivers.

This particular video is a plea for donations so that the documentary could be finsihed but the first 4 minutes are still powerful. The documentary is primarily about how art has helped people with autism express their feelings and thoughts that they cannot express verbally. The art is therapeutic for them because it allows them to share things that have been trapped inside for too many years. Bittersweet Farms sounds like a wonderful place for people with ASD and I can't help but wonder why there isn't one of these in every state. So many people would benefit from the care provided at Bittersweet Farms. I am just glad there are places like this out there.

Looks cool.

An interesting documentary that develops an intriguing connection between "Art" and "Autism".
