Raising Autism Awareness in ShanghaiBy C. Kramer
In China, parents of autistic children struggle with a stigma that has been around for hundreds of years: many people, relying only on superstition, believe that the parents of children with autism are being punished for past wrongs. The Yang Ai Foundation is a national support group for parents of children on the spectrum. The foundation set up “living sculptures” on the streets of Shanghai to raise awareness for parents who feel alone in their struggle. Take a look at this powerful demonstration in the clip.
