Help children understand that we all have things in common.
- Tell kids that although everyone is different, we all share important feelings. Explain that in the video they will learn what some children with autism like to do.
Watch the video together (when words appear on screen, read them aloud to children).
- Talk about what you have seen. Ask, “What is your favorite food?” “What is your favorite color?” “What is your favorite thing to do?” Invite children to share their answers.
- Talk about what Nasaiah experienced during his day. Ask, “Do you remember some new things Nasaiah was learning to do?” (jump into his father’s arms, talk to new children, share with his sister). Explain that we are all learning new things all the time. Ask, “What is something that you have learned how to do?”
