The Puberty Video for Boys with Asperger Syndrome

Audience: Siblings and parents of children who have Asperger Syndrome or Autism Spectrum Disorder - Level 1.


This video contains four programs; three for siblings of different ages and developmental levels, and one for their parents.


The sibling programs are for children ages 4 to 7, ages 7 to 12, and ages 12 to adult.  The programs explore how siblings have learned to get along with, support, and enjoy brothers and sisters who have Asperger Syndrome.  The programs also can help parents understand the special needs of their neurotypical children. The segment for siblings ages 4 to 7 features puppets and the segments for older siblings feature interviews with brothers and sisters.  We interviewed mothers and fathers for the parent segments.


After viewing these programs, siblings should have a better understanding that their brothers and sisters aren't trying to be difficult, and should be more willing to treat them with tolerance, caring, and respect.


In this video, you'll see interviews with family members supporting children with Asperger Syndrome.  We produced a similar program, Understanding Brothers and Sisters on the Autism Spectrum, that contains interviews with different families supporting children who have a range of autistic conditions.


Combined Program Length: 109 minutes
