this video shows how savants (a person affected by a disability, mostly autism) can have amazing powers which no 'normal person' can have whether they are to do with music, art or math. I like this video because it shows how people with disabilities can have amazing powers which people without a disability cant do. this can relate to the book because Christopher is really good at math and science and knows a lot about space missions and can remember a lot of prime numbers despite his disability.
this websites tells you facts about autism like who is most likely to get autism and how much is spent on an autistic kid each year. I like this website because it gives you cool facts about autism that you wouldn't really know.
this a website that has a poem written by an Asperger's kid called Benjamin and it says that Benjamin was given the first 2 words in every sentence as a writing prompt. the poem is about his experience with being a 10-year-old with Asperger's. I like this poem because it shows how people with disability can make beautiful and amazing things even though they have a disability. this relates to the book because Christopher is really good at math and science even though having a mental disability.
this website is about what people with autism want you know which includes how to treat them and what they think. I like this website because it lets you know what autistic people want you to know so that you don't make them sad, angry or upset which is bad for them.
this website talks about how children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can be more sensitive than usual to environmental stimuli, such as noise, light, clothing or temperature and as well there are other children with ASD who have lowered sensitivity levels. I like this website because it gives people an insight on how autistic can be sensitive to normal things like light, colour and noise. this relates to the book (the incident of the curious dog in the night time) because Christopher doesn't like the colours yellow and brown while he likes the colour red.
this website is about the signs/symptoms of having autism and to see if your child could have autism. this is a good website because it gives people a chance to see if someone you know has autism without going to a doctor until things get serious.
Friendship Circle is an organization where people with special needs (ex. autism, etc...) get to hang out and have fun with people whom don't have special needs. I like this organization because it gives people with special needs a chance to have fun and it also allows them to make friends with other special needs kids and volunteers.
this website is about defining autism sectrum disorder and I like it because it helps define what autism is for people who don't know what it is. this relates to the book because Christopher has autism.
