Summary
It's A Different World follows three autistic children in one family: Scott (11), Stephen and Katie Turner (10-year-old twins) over the course of two years. Each child was given a video camera to help explore their thoughts and feelings. This technique led to unique documentation of each child's changing perspective on being autistic. The two boys, Scott and Stephen, were diagnosed with Asperger's. They reveal themselves to be highly communicative and very smart, however they struggle with social interaction and non- verbal communication. During the course of the film Stephen became increasingly uncomfortable about his autism. By contrast, Scott is humorous in his efforts to define himself. Their sister fell on the lower end of the autism spectrum and is extremely routine-driven, prone to frequent tantrums and crying bouts. She communicated at the level of a two-and-a-half year old (at chronological age 9). In some ways however, she was the success story of the film, making huge progress with her communication and socialization skills. The film is a captivating glimpse into three different faces of autism, and viewers can expect to have some of their preconceptions challenged
