Which ever way you look at it, it's still autism

A new DVD from Shining City Visions
(DVD Pal, Running time - about 30 minutes) Price 19.99

BE WARNED! If you watch this DVD you will have to LISTEN. You will have to THINK. You may even reach for a dictionary. But you will be amply REWARDED for your effort.

Larry Arnold is autistic. He is also an artist, a film maker, a musician, a photographer and a poet. All these talents are displayed in this DVD in which he invites us to revisit autism, not in terms of diagnostic categories, but as a mix of perspectives that may sometimes clash.

Parents and professionals have long been aware of this conflict. Larry has done us all a service in dissecting the sources of conflict and offering us his own take on autism "from the inside." He suggests that we should listen to each other (and to him!) and view the world from each other's perspective before we make categorical statements about autism. I do not agree with everything Larry has to say. I do not expect you to, either. But I hope that, like me, you will feel encouraged to question your own perspective before agreeing with Larry that, "Whichever way you look at it, it is still autism."
