The MidAmerica Emmy award winning, “Just Like You – Autism” launches an exciting campaign that calls our communities, our kids and the world to learn, understand and accept those living with autism. JLY-Autism harnesses the power of film to connect and create empathy in others in an unprecedented way. The film’s documentary techniques capture the real life stories of 3 children and their best friends/sibling. They explain their lives with autism in relatable everyday scenes. The kids and former NFL quarterback, Trent Green, explain sensitivities, behaviors and model how to be a good friend to someone living with autism. Those who see it will understand and accept people living with autism for who they are on the inside. JLY-Autism boldly seeks to foster a world of people who know about, understand and accept those living with autism by sharing the perspective of courageous individuals who are not defined or limited by their conditions. Instead, they are “just like you.”
