In this short video, 13-year-old Aiden talks about his friend Ellis, who has Asperger’s disorder. He discusses their shared interests, and tells how he looked out for Ellis at primary school. He says Ellis is smart, friendly, and ‘more organised than me’. His advice for other kids if they meet someone with Asperger’s is to ‘just be friendly to them’.
