AUTISM: Cartoons could aid children with autism

" We've got to somehow find a way to get autistic children to overcome their fear of looking at people's faces" - Professor Simon Baron-CohenAutism Research Centre, Cambridge University

A cartoon project, led by Cambridge University's Autism Research Center, has shown a 52% increase in the ability of a small group of autistic children to understand human emotions. Narrated by actor Stephen Fry, the cartoons teach autistic children about facial expressions by imposing human faces on inanimate objects. BBC (1/8)
