Making a transition into middle school can be frightening and overwhelming for the average student. Now imagine what the experience is like when you are a young child on the autism spectrum. In this episode, Talk It Up TV will feature two sweet girls who are living with autism named Sky and Makena. These girls are about to leave the special needs program at their elementary school to go into main-stream middle school where bullying can often make integration nearly insurmountable. We will introduce some facts about autism and how bullying can stifle a young child. And you won’t want to miss the life-changing surprise we have for these girls to help build their confidence for this next step. It’s not about being less, it’s about showing that different is extraordinary and we all have it within us.
