Marvelous Max


Marvelous Max is a short animated video created to increase awareness and understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorders especially with Primary school students. It is specifically aimed at school children in years 1-6, though very useful at all ages. Marvelous Max is about a boy with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) and his mates, Sam, Dev & year 6 peer support leader, Charli.

…”Max is different. He has someone who sits with him and he gets to leave the classroom from time to time.”

This video helps explain to school peers why Max acts or thinks differently to others and needs some accommodations. When the group decide to get to know Max better they end up becoming great friends. With greater knowledge of ASD, young people will be more likely to attribute the idiosyncrasies of ASD to a classmate’s disability rather than a choice. By increasing student’s awareness of differences amongst peers will in turn help create a more inclusive classroom and overall sense of community.

Different is awesome and this video not only explains how kids with ASD may be different but gets kids talking about how they may be different to others and how we can celebrate those differences.

Teaching resources are available in kit form to any Parents, School teachers or community member wishing to use Marvelous Max.
