Brooklyn School Hosts Kid-Created Autism Awareness Talk Show

They express themselves and have a good time in their own unique ways

Since her students vary from non-verbal and minimally-verbal to verbal, Conto and her fellow colleagues encouraged the children to do the talk show in their own unique way. In an effort to boost their social and speaking skills, some of the children performed interviews. Moreover, some were a part of the audience, and others were just there to dance and have a good time.  “Every week for an hour, students from the general ed school joined my kids and they did the talk show together,” said Conto.
