“Life, Animated” ​Screening cum Public Talk 2019-04-06

Have you ever met people with autism but you were unable to know their thoughts and they act as if they do not know how to communicate with the outside world?

In respond to “World Autism Awareness Day” on 2 April, APF organises “Autism Awareness Actions” (AAAs) this year. One of the activities is documentary screening cum talk. The selected movie, “Life, Animated” has won the Sundance Film Festival Award for Best Direction and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature category at the 89th Academy Awards. The movie introduces the growth and development of a teenager with autism. It tells how he lived in his own world at first and how to find a unique way to express himself, then he was able to integrate into the community.

We are also going to hold a talk after the documentary screening. An experienced therapist will explain skills and technique of Applied Behaviour Analysis in an easily understandable manner and how to communicate with people with autism through case sharing, enhancing the public awareness of autism.
