“My Autism and Me” Gives an Intimate Look

For people without autism, relating emotionally to those on the spectrum can be challenging — operating under entirely different decision-making processes makes communication difficult.

In this BBC feature, Rosie, a 13-year-old from the UK who has Asperger’s, does a wonderful job of bridging that communication gap by intimately describing the thoughts and feelings that dictate her daily decisions. Rosie insists that even though living with it Asperger’s is difficult, it’s given her a creative and sharp mind, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.

In addition to Rosie’s story, you’ll also find out how three other UK children are affected by the condition — in their own words.
