On the Spectrum: Children and Autism Educational Video 

Recipient of the Autism Society of America 2002 Media Excellence in Video Award

On the Spectrum: Children and Autism video cover. Click here for a larger image.On the Spectrum: Children and Autism is a 24-minute educational video, created in collaboration with the UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, The New Jersey Center for Outreach and Services for the Autism Community, Inc. (COSAC), and First Signs, Inc. Our video will enable pediatric practitioners, clinicians, and early childhood educators to recognize the early warning signs of autism spectrum disorders in early childhood and to understand the impact of early and appropriate intervention. The video outlines the diagnostic criteria for autism spectrum disorders, provides the guidelines for conducting a developmental screening, and describes how to relay developmental concerns to parents. Differences in development are vividly demonstrated through videotaped examples of typical and atypical behavior in children from four to thirty-six months of age. Newswoman Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes narrates this video; it also features actor Anthony Edwards of E.R. and parents of children with autism, including football legend Doug Flutie and his wife, Laurie. On the Spectrum draws upon clinical expertise, with interviews of some of the nation’s top experts in the field.
