ARTIST STATEMENT Autism affects one in every 88 children are diagnosed with autism. Take into consideration that the average American family has two kids or more. That means that even MORE siblings are affected than those that are diagnosed! The stars of "Touched By Autism" are friends of Mia: Christian Baker is one of her friends who is part of her Sibling Group and Paul Mikulskis is a classmate of hers who she's known for years and attends Boston Latin School. Autism changes lives: those affected by autism would not be as compassionate, as patient, or as open to anybody's situation as they just naturally have to become when touched by autism. Anyone who is touched by autism is left a different person. "Touched By Autism" is to serve as an eye-opener that makes people more aware to the fact that autism doesn't just affect the person diagnosed: it affects every single person the autistic person meets. More than that, it affects the people closest to them: in their family and in age, the closest would be their siblings. Outsiders most times forget about how autism affects the siblings and this video is to enlighten others to remember everyone that is affected. The siblings, besides the diagnosed, are those that are affected by autism the most.
