I really like this informative DVD on Autism and of several families' experiences/stories! They are from various ethnic and religious backgrounds, living in Duabai! The Children are of different ages, and differing severity of autism, also!
The older teen describes his memory of his earlier years' struggle with his illness and the progress and satisfsctution he gets now from life and hope for the future!
Many of these youngsters were a challenge to handle when young, but got better as they got older and were able to express themselves and say what they needed! Not all of them speak and many that do had had various therapies! Most, surprisingly, do speak bi-lingually!

The families' love and affection for their children is evident!
This Documentary was made in Dubai, showing some interesting scenery of the desert, and an astonishingly- beautiful architecture of the Mosque that one of the family attends! It also shows a Mormon Church!
The Documentary centers around the process of puting on a Musical Comedy Play by this group of kids! Some of them are quite talented, for example: memory, singing, humour, etc!

This is a realistic, down-to-earth documentary about the families parenting their autistic children! It is also shows cultural differences in a warm way: at the end of the day, we all want what is best for our kids and want them to be happy, no matter what country we live in or language we speak!
