Autistic students typically lack awareness that other people have their own thoughts and feelings. In this session, results are shared from a project that used Claymation help develop social awareness in an autistic student. A progression of movie making skills, projects, and presentations successfully helped an ASD student gifted in Claymation to increase his social skills and awareness. Participants will be invited to create their own Claymation video at the end of the formal presentation.
