Project Main Details

Student Senior Project 
Hi! My senior project is a PSA that will help to increase awareness of autism through the use of kinetic typography as well as simulating the experience of an audio-visual sensory overload, which can be a daily occurrence for people with autism.

After viewing my project, I want people to come out of the experience feeling of awareness. I want them to feel that they need to look at their lives and be more aware of how they are very quick to judge people.

The overall tone of the piece will be fairly happy, but not an overly exaggerated sort of happy, just a bit of a happy note to it!

Script Details

The overall tone of the piece will be fairly happy, but not an overly exaggerated sort of happy, just a bit of a happy note to it! 
What is autism? Autism is a developmental disorder that affects the brains ability to interact and communicate with others. Autism also affects a person’s sensory information, which could cause them to have heightened or low senses of taste, touch, sight, smell, or hearing. Because autism affects a person’s sensory information, sensory overloads are common. During an overload, noises can seem louder, smells can be a lot stronger, and lights can seem brighter.

The rate of people diagnosed with autism is on the rise. Currently about 1 in 110 children in the United States are diagnosed with autism, as opposed to 1 in 2,500 in just 1980. Boys are 3-4 times more likely than girls to have autism. 40% of these children will never speak a word and 25-30% will learn to speak and then regress back to non-verbal around 12-18 months. The estimated lifetime cost to care for someone with autism is $3.2 million dollars with medical expenses costing on average $4,110-$6,200 a year.

Even though an estimated 10% of children on the autism spectrum have a genetic or neurological disorder such as down syndrome, do not assume that all children who have autism are mentally challenged. People with autism are not lazy. It is not a lack of
intelligence or a result of poor parenting.

In fact, people with autism are very intelligent and have special talents, an estimated 10-25% of people on the autism spectrum have savant abilities, meaning they have extraordinary skills or abilities. People with autism are loving, caring people. They are
hardworking and dependable. And tend to pay closer attention to detail and may notice many details that others may have missed.
