JACKSON – “All About Autism,” a documentary screening and discussion program, will be held at the Jackson Branch of the Ocean County Library on Monday, October 2, from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m.
Watch two fascinating documentaries that depict what it is like to have autism. In “Autism: Insight from Inside,” Temple Grandin, Jonathan Chase, and Steven Shore explore how autism affects their lives. In “TEDTalks: Temple Grandin – The World Needs All Kinds of Minds,” the celebrated animal behaviorist and autism advocate discusses the ways in which her mind works differently from that of the typical person.
The films are available through the Ocean County Library database “Access Video on Demand.” A discussion will follow the screenings.
This program is open to everyone, but participants are asked to register. To sign up, call (732) 928-4400, ext. 4 or go online to www.theoceancountylibrary.org. The Jackson Branch Library is located at 2 Jackson Drive in Jackson Township.
