Senarai Filem Tentang Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

U olls tau tak apa itu Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD)?  Dalam bahasa Kak Merr, ASD ni bukanlah satu penyakit tapi something yang berlaku pada seorang maknusia itu dari peringkat baby lagi yang membuatkan dia sedikit lain dari individu lain. Antara aspek yang u olls boleh tengok kelainan dia adalah dari segi perhubungan sosial sesama maknusia lain,  mempunyai kecenderungan minat mendalam yang terhad dan suka ulang-ulang. 

Allah cipta maknusia ni macam-macam jenih.  Ada yang baik,  yang jahat,  yang cantek,  yang tak cantek,  yang pirasyat,  yang dengki,  yang suka bawak cerita bagi orang bergadoh dan ada orang yang suka buat ramai!!  Benda kecik-kecik pun dia buat ramai.  Oleh itu kita semua,  janganla jadi macam kera sumbang sampai tak tau nak bercampuk dengan orang.  Sapa pun orang itu,  dia pun hamba Allah macam kita.  Respek la u olls ok! 

Awat la akak tiba-tiba mengamok over ni?  Hari ini marilah kita melihat sesuatu yang akak cilok dari website Autism Research Institute tentang movies yang dibuat tentang manusia yang mempunyai ASD.  Ada yang akak dah tingok,  ada yang belum u olls.  So haruslah akak akan mengdonlod muvie-muvie ini nanti!
