Sanctuary posted a topic in Help & ResourcesIf you're in the UK you may want to watch this documentary in which Richard and his son Jaco who has autism travel to find out the experiences of autistic people and some of the initiatives developed to give them more support. This includes going to the USA where one of their visits is to Sesame Street to find out about Julia, a recently introduced autistic character: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m00081yt/richard-and-jaco-take-on-the-world An earlier documentary more centred on Jaco is still available but only until this evening (UK time): https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08l684l/richard-and-jaco-life-with-autism A couple of autistic people briefly featured in the new documentary have YouTube channels that you may want to check out if you haven't already seen them: Agony Autie https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCN9fwImPnx16e8-eThlKCWQ invisible i https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2_a05o1pW4fr9SzlyMv8OA
As a lot of people on the spectrum are non-binary in gender and more non-conforming in general I thought some people might be interested in this docu-series thats just come up on youtube that I really loved - its really well done. Its not pushy, and is completely fascinating, sad, eye-opening in a lot of different ways. I really recommend it. There are two episodes out currently.
