A Boy's Puberty Video

More than a male and female anatomy lesson, this video also helps young men with social challenges understand how to interact positively with girls and women. Most importantly, it puts sex into perspective, revealing the truth behind the myths boys may see in the media. Narrated by a young man with Asperger Syndrome and a neurotypical female co-host, the program is a candid guide to puberty. Designed for boys with Asperger Syndrome ages 10 to 17 who are nearing or going through puberty, and for the the teachers, counselors, and others who advise them.

"...excellent resource...important basic information on puberty for more cognitively able individuals with social learning challenges... straightforward, low-key, fact based perspectives...focus on relationships as well as the physical aspects..." Fred R. Volkmar, M.D., Yale University, Irving B. Harris Professor of Child Psychiatry, Pediatrics and Psychology (Note: There is another version of this program designed for general audiences that does not include information about Asperger Syndrome.)
