Video reveals world of autistic woman
In the video linked above, Amanda Baggs, an autistic woman, gives us some insight into what it's like to live with autism. Although you may not understand it upon first sight, Amanda is a brilliant young woman. She produced her own video to communicate what living with autism is like for her, posted it on YouTube, and we're streaming part of it here for you. The video communicates from Amanda's perspective how she perceives and interacts with the rest of the world around her. We'll bring you more of Amanda's story on tonight's show. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the piece she produced.
