One Response to Cool Video Of The Week

  1. I think this video would be even more appropriate for viewing and discussion among children — even as early as upper elementary school, especially if an autistic individual is in the class.
    The series of videos that follow are remarkably produced and valuable tools for medical personnel and laymen alike. Early recognition and diagnosis is of the essence for remediation and potential cure.
