Autismus jako příležitost a zrcadlo společnosti

Petr Třešňák TEDxPrague 2017

Autism as an opportunity and reflection of the society? Not everyone looks like Rain Man – and we don’t talk much about those with challenging behavior that can hardly be handled. Dorotka is diagnosed with devastating form of autism reflected by self-injurious behaviour combined with mental disability. From the perspective of a her father we’ll see how such illness can easily destroy a family.

On the other hand, can we learn to understand them and better perceive the otherness and different needs of every single person? Are we able to improve social support in the world that isn’t ready to help affected families yet?
