Intricate Minds II: Understanding Elementary School Classmates With Asperger Syndrome - DVD includes interviews with boys and girls ages 8 through 12 who describe what it's like to have Asperger Syndrome (AS). They reveal some of the positive qualities classmates will find if they look past the "different" behaviors that kids with AS sometimes exhibit in school.
The program also takes viewers "inside Asperger Syndrome" with demonstrations to help them see things from the point of view of kids who have AS. This DVD can help classmates avoid the trap of ignoring or teasing kids who have trouble fitting in. Kids who understand the reasons for "different" students' actions are much more likely to accept them socially and include them in activities. The program is designed for students in elementary grades 3 through 6 and is an excellent staff development tool. (Running time: 16 minutes.)
