Chris Packham helps autistic people illustrate how their minds work, helping them connect with their friends and family in a new, more authentic way.
Inside Our Autistic Minds, a two-part docuseries, concludes Monday, January 29 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV
Since sharing his own autism diagnosis with the world, naturalist and presenter Chris Packham has been flooded with letters and emails from other autistic people, frustrated that their friends, families and co-workers don’t understand them. By teaming up with top film-makers, graphic designers, animators and musicians, Chris helps a group of autistic people create short films to reveal to their family and friends how they’re truly feeling inside – what’s really going on in their autistic minds.
This program is presented as part of Move to Include™, WXXI and The Golisano Foundation’s national initiative that uses the power of public media to promote inclusion.
