|Understanding Classmates With Asperger Syndrome DVD (High School).
Through interviews with students who have Asperger Syndrome (AS), this DVD offers an inside look at how teenagers with AS act, think and feel -- and how they're routinely treated. The students talk about their strengths as well as their challenges and describe how important is it to them to be treated with respect. The program's open includes speculation that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Sir Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein had Asperger Syndrome. After viewing this video, classmates should be less likely to ignore or harass students with AS -- and be more willing to treat them as equals. The program is designed for students in high school and middle school and is an excellent staff development tool. This DVD has optional English, Spanish and Japanese subtitles
