But S/he Doesn't Look Autistic! (Video)

Happy Autism Awarness Month!

After being told one too many times that my kids don’t “look autistic,” I asked readers of my blog to send me photos of their amazing kids, so that I could create a video showing what autism really looks like. (Hint: It’s not Rainman, thanks.)

It looks like this.

A huge thank you to the band The Eli Story for graciously allowing me to use their song “Titles We Hold” for this video. If you dig their music, it’s available on iTunes (search: The Eli Story). You can also follow them on Facebook and on Twitter. If you’re in the Chicago area, they’re playing at the March of Dimes Walk in Grant Park on April 29.
