Teenager's film on having autism

A teenager who lives with the Aspergers form of autism is appearing in a BBC Newsround special which aims to raise awareness about the condition.

Rose King, 13, and her mother Sharon, say they hope it will give people a greater understanding about the many different forms of autism.

Rosie, who aspires to be an actress, is shown introducing her part in the film.

"My Autism and Me - a Newsround Special" is on CBBC at 1645.

I saw this advertised on Newsround this morning, and thought it looked like it could be interesting viewing.

That looks interesting. I'm glad they have more severely affected children, for balance- sometimes these documentaries are a tad skewed.
