The Asperger’s Difference

by Jamey Wolff (Director)

Reviewed by Susan J. Moreno
This DVD features three very engaging teens who have Asperger Syndrome. They represent different ages, different skills levels in various areas, such as speech, and different opinions, speech and habits. In otherwords, they are simply three diverse individuals, one girl and two boys.   Each is eloquent in their own way in letting us into their world, their talents, their challenges and their dreams for the future. This DVD is long enough to do a good job of explaining Asperger’s in the teen years, yet short enough to hold the interest of the audience. 
The DVD comes with an excellent Discussion Guide.   I would recommend this to people on the autism spectrum, their families, their teachers, and their peers. If the price seems to dear, you might try purchasing and sharing between schools and/or families. It is truly worth the expenditure.
