Leicester University have put together a project, which has been designed to help individuals and families develop a greater understanding of childhood autism.
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a complex condition to understand and we had lots of advice from families of children with ASD. Families said they wanted information about autism that was brief but useful, trustworthy, and could be shared with the rest of the family.
Therefore, they have created a series of short information films (approximately 5 minutes each) on different aspects of autism, which have been recorded in a number of different languages. In these videos, they cover some of the more common characteristics of autism and some of the more common difficulties that are seen.
They hope these information videos, which have been created by a partnership between the University of Leicester, Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust, and was funded by Carlton Hayes Charity, will be helpful in learning about autism. The material can be accessed on most devices, including phones and tablets.
