Video: Interacting with others: children with autism spectrum disorder

3-12 years

In this short video, parents of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) discuss their children’s social interactions with other children. Children with ASD can’t always communicate easily, but they can still have good friends. Parents talk about the empathy and encouragement their children get from other children, and about growing awareness of ASD in the community.

One mum says, ‘If we build this awareness and build this understanding, it builds children’s ability to be more tolerant.’
