Summary This engaging film follows an intensive film camp for children aged eleven to nineteen who have autism spectrum disorders. The camp is led by award-winning educator Brad Koepenick, an actor who found his true passion in the classroom. Koepenick models his camp around recent research principles showing that developing autistic children's creativity significantly improves social interaction skills. The film follows seven children with Asperger syndrome as they create films, poems, paintings, and music. Revealing moments in the children's private lives and candid interviews with their parents bring to life the challenges they and their families face in coping with their disorders. Presently, more than one child in one hundred has autism, and a growing number are diagnosed each year. Kids with Cameras offers insight into the potential of these young people when their creative energies are unleashed
