Eye-Opening PSA Shows What A Normal Day Is Like For A Child With Autism

Post by Thorin on Sat Apr 08, 2017 6:28 pm

To promote understanding during Autism Awareness Month, the U.K. organization, The National Autistic Society, released a video called “Make It Stop.” The video follows a 12-year-old girl named Holly, who has autism. As she goes about an ordinary day, viewers see the way many seemingly simple interactions and sensory experiences can overwhelm her mind. “I’m autistic, and sometimes I get too much information,” Holly explains in a voiceover. The video description on YouTube expands the message. “It’s as if my brain is too crowded ― and about to explode. But by taking a minute, you can give an autistic person like me the time they need. Understand autism, the person, and the change you can make.”

“Make It Stop” is part of the organization’s “Too Much Information” campaign which kicked off with a similar video last year

For Holly, the campaign has even more personal meaning. She used the PSA to tell her classmates about her experience with autism for the first time and educate them about the disorder.
