Are you tired of negative messages about autism in the media? Especially video segments in which people talk about autistic people but never talk to them? If so try this.
At Rosehill Special School in Nottingham, pupils have developed levels of creative and imaginative skills not often associated with those on the autistic spectrum, and a Creative Partnership allows students to work on a variety of arts projects.
- See autistic people being creative!
- Hear autistic people speaking for themselves!
- Listen to teachers who admit that their work is challenging the triad!
Artists supported by Creative partnerships come into the school with no preconceptions and challenge the pupils and the staff and it works. It works in my school as well. We are also part of the Creative Partnerships project. In my school the partnership is between students, many of whom are autistic, and professional musicians. Staff work alongside students and we perform together. We are not on Teachers TV … yet.
This is a 30 minute streaming video or a 70 meg download. So broadband users only I am afraid.
