This is a wonderful little video about a young British girl named Rosie who has Asperger Syndrome, and who has a little brother named Lenny who has classic autism.
I found it on the site of another WordPress blogger (thank you, Ragga!) and was instantly riveted, not least because Rosie and Ben both remind me of myself when I was young.
Memorable quotes: “Right now, Lenny is nesting on the TV!” (Rosie) and “Everyone else is weird. I’m normal.” (Tony) 🙂
It’s just over 14 minutes long, and the accents may be a bit hard for North American listeners to follow for the first minute or so until your ears become attuned to the difference (I say they’re Scottish and my friend A. says “generic middle-class British”… stay tuned!).
Anyway, until then, get yourself a nice cup of tea and a couple of biscuits, settle in, and prepare to be moved.
