In A Different Key

Editorial Illustration for Children Autism

I had participated in a social educational project last year and I was responsible for designing a course for autism child. Since then I became interesting in some social problems with autism children and their autism families and have been researching it. A book named In A Different Key: The Story of Autism, written by John Donvan and Caren Zucker, was inspired me a lot. It described the history of autism and the development of people’s awareness of knowing autism in social change. The book record plenty of story of autism and their families’ facing difficulties, which extremely impressed me.

The tough things autism families face today is probably the same as those families suffered in the past in some way. So when I had a chance to have a class of editorial illustration, I wanted to used what I had learn to draw for autism and present their trouble and some hard situation they may have to face.

去年我参加了一个社会教育项目,负责为自闭症儿童设计课程。从那时起,我开始对自闭症儿童和他们的自闭症家庭的一些社会问题感兴趣,并一直在进行研究。一本由John Donvan和Caren Zucker合著的书——《以不同的方式:自闭症的故事》——给了我很大的启发。它描述了自闭症的历史以及社会变迁中人们对自闭症认识的发展。书中记录了大量自闭症患者及其家庭所面临的困难,给我留下了深刻的印象。
