These specialized social film making groups are designed to encourage collaboration, creativity, and career exploration in children, teens and young adults with autism spectrum disorders. Sessions help develop social skills and encourage group interaction while teaching valuable lessons in cooperation, time management, and artistic expression. Participants meet in a casual, low-key environment, encouraging conversation and camaraderie, while giving young people hands-on experience with cameras, sound equipment, computer programs, and other aspects of visual media.
