Next Vista for Learning and the author of Making Your School Something Special. This particular post features a video that I have featured many times in my own video workshops.
April is National Autism Awareness Month in the USA. Several years ago, a young man named Michael with some help from his teacher John Lozano (https://twitter.com/mrjohnlozano) made one of the most powerful videos on NextVista.org, telling the story of how he sees the world.
I hope this video is one that will help your students better understand their classmates with autism. I think it's appeared on the FreeTech4Teachers blog before, but it's a beautifully courageous story, I'm still moved by what he has to say, and am happy to put it in front of you again!
My Name is Michael
