derstanding My Friends With Autism
 is a program designed for children ages 5–11, to help them understand why children with autism act the way they do.

​​​UNIQUE: Traditional Autism Awareness programs focus on what autism is and how people with autism behave. Understanding My Friends With Autism explains why children with autism act the way they do.

INFORMATIVE: ​The program 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. It explains how sensory processing issues make life difficult for these children and how they find it hard to understand sarcasm, idioms and some jokes. It mentions the need for routines and how changes to their routine can be upsetting.

FUN and INTERACTIVE:​​ Participants perform simulation exercises to help them experience first hand how annoying sensory issues can be. They wear 'magic' glasses and play games all while learning how children with autism experience the world.

FLEXIBLE: The program is driven by a video with detailed instructions on how to perform the simulation exercises so anyone can facilitate the session - even an older child!
​The program can be used school wide with groups of varying size and could even be used to replace a regular movie during those rainy/snowy indoor recesses!!
​It can be used as a standalone autism awareness module or as part of an anti-bullying curriculum.
