I found this video on pbs.org. http://www.pbs.org/teachersource/learning.now/2007/02/amandas_story.html
a blog I regularly visit and can recommend for thought-provoking topics. It’s hosted by Andy Carvin.
Amanda Baggs is autistic. She has learned our language and communicates through her blog. http://ballastexistenz.autistics.org
She has also made a film on youtube. In the first section she is communicating in her language. In the second part she translates her language for us.
Please watch the whole video (about 8 minutes). I was incredibly moved by this example of communication – a window to a place very few people have ever had the opportunity to experience.
What does this mean to me? Well, I need time to think about it, but I would be very interested in comments and reactions from others.
