Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism
are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors.
Presented and narrated by actor Hugo Weaving, this animation looks at the key characteristics of autism
as experienced by his 16-year-old nephew Ky Greenwood.
The project was part of Sentis' “Great Works” program and was inspired by Ky’s father William who is part of the Sentis team.
