Rudely Interrupted

STEP ONE:  “WHAT IS ASPERGER?”

Asperger syndrome or Asperger’s syndrome or Asperger disorder (play /ˈɑːspərɡərz/[1] or /ˈæspərɡərz/[2]) is an autism spectrum disorder that is characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction, along with restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. It differs from other autism spectrum disorders by its relative preservation of linguistic and cognitive development. Although not required for diagnosis, physical clumsiness and atypical use of language are frequently reported.[3][4]

Asperger syndrome is named after the Austrian pediatrician Hans Asperger who, in 1944, studied and described children in his practice who lacked nonverbal communication skills, demonstrated limited empathy with their peers, and were physically clumsy.[Extract from wikipedia]

STEP 2:  “RUDELY INTERRUPTED: A SPECIAL BAND”

I can’t wait to show you this new group I have just come across: RUDELY INTERRUPTED. Watch the video and I will post another one in the following post. But first, just watch and try to answer the following questions:

 

1. What disabilities does Rory have? Mention at least two of them.

2. How many members in the group have got disabilities?

3. Rory says that he does not drink alcohol. What fizzy drink does he drink instead?

4.  What percentage of hearing disability does Marcus have?

STEP 3: “CLOSE MY EYES”

Now, enjoy the video. This is a promotional video for an Australian not-for-profit organisation providing disability services throughout Victoria to thousands of children and adults with physical and multiple disabilities. It was one of the videos shown in the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity: “See the Person, not the Disabilty”.  I just love it, hope you enjoy it too.
