This video is about two school-aged children who share their knowledge and personal experiences about autism. It is meant for a younger audience, who want to understand autism from an everyday point of view. The script was written by a self-advocate, Maxine Share. The voiceovers were performed by self-advocate actors Kayla Tellier and Chuck Smith.
