Hey everyone,

I recently wrote some music for a project aimed at autism awareness and understanding autism for children, the video works great for all ages but has also been received really well by parents and teachers.

Its had over a million plays in the first 3 days and my friend over at Studio Tinto did a fantastic job writing and directing it, we even got the amazing David Gant to narrate it.

Have a look and share with your friends and family if you can.

All the best

Chris

Well done! Many people fall somewhere on "The Spectrum" between high functioning aspergers syndrome and full on autism. I'm a high functioning "aspie" (Aspergers Syndrome) myself so I often miss small social cues in face to face situations. There are benefits to being an "non normal" in in many cases the brains of folks on the spectrum are just wired differently and they are capable of great feats of memory or physical tasks or both. So the good news is that folks on the spectrum do sometimes get at least some kind of bonus for their trouble smile.gif Many of my profs at uni were obviously on the spectrum and really couldn't function outside of the university. There are just wads of profs who seem a bit eccentric, but really know their subject matter like the back of their hand. These are typically autists. Though not always smile.gif
