Redhaover the weekend.

That's what I appreciate most about it.
It didn't try to "glamourise" the whole thing like so many other movies about people with autism.
It's not about the few high-functioning talented kids with autism but instead the normal ones who are in the majority and the struggles of their parents and loved ones.
Yes, I also hope that more people will watch the movie so that they can understand more what autism is really all about.
Meanwhile, there's this story related to autism about KJ which I think you all may want to read,
Overwhelmed with emotion, Khairy opens up about son, Timor Abdullah
KUALA LUMPUR: An emotional Khairy Jamaluddin admitted that reading Barry M. Prizant’s book, titled “Uniquely Human” was an eye opener for him, and the book brought him closer to his second child, Timor Abdullah.
At a book review program in Petaling Jaya yesterday, the Youth and Sport Minister said that Prizant’s book on autism made him realise how special his child was, in ways that he never saw before, according to a Malay daily.
“This book changed my life. It changed how I approached my own son and how to completely understand him without trying to change him to be like other kids,” said Khairy.
Khairy, choked on emotion, stressed how important the book was to him, which he said highlighted ways for him to empathise with his special and unique son.
He said, “I am sorry for being a bit emotional today about my son, but I didn’t get why he was that way.
“But this book taught me to see things through his point of view and understand his feelings.”
Married since 2001, Khairy and his wife, Nori Abdullah Badawi have three sons, Jibreil Ali, 9 years old, and Timor Abdullah, 8, and Raif "Leo" Averroes, who is a little over a year old.

Yasmin Yusof's movies???? Or did the write meant Yasmin Ahmad???ReplyDelete
I am feeling confused here.
If I say that the poor guy probably had an honest mistake would you still be confused? The drama that is inherent in us all.Delete
Thanks for highlighting. The book. And the son. Make us all more human. If behaviours are used to describe autism, then in varied intensities we are all autistics. Try mapping some of our behaviours to those described for autism. Hopefully we can understand ourselves and others better.ReplyDelete
Am i not, i mean some kind of misplaced "autistic" sometimes .....Delete
Latest. Yes. Out of context here. But I appreciate the spirit of the brother. Just maybe. Others could learn from this. And do the needful. http://english.astroawani.com/malaysia-news/nazir-razak-takes-leave-allow-investigation-us-7-mil-transfer-102851ReplyDelete
Tun Razak would be horrified if he saw his sons.......Delete
There are various forms of dysfunctionality in most family relationships. This one has serious repercussions for the masses.Delete
Ya lah, we all parents must come to terms with an autistic child in the family ... but it helps to be economically well off lah. Does the government help concerning these children?ReplyDelete
.....we have a lot of catching-up to do as far as treatment of special child is concern...compare ourselves with the advanced nation...if we think we want to be a fully developed nation...the leaders themselves must be fully aware of this...and set the right policies...ReplyDelete
I admit la.....KJ's story was quite touching.ReplyDelete
I thought you said you don't like him? Kih x 3Delete
We need our ministers to do their work right in helping the rakyat. For example, we need bigger allocation for the needy, those with special needs including those diagnosed with disorders such as autism.ReplyDelete
To do this, the first thing is for the ministers to avoid corruption/missing money from their ministries.
Autism. My grandson suffers from autism. Last week we took him to Tole Acupunture at KH Tower KL. he is our super hero in the making.ReplyDelete
