Asperger Syndrome (AS) is a hidden disability. People with hidden disabilities often remain at the margins of society, communication difficulties being a major part of their marginalisation.

'Figuring Speech' is a film which explores an interpretation of figurative language from the perspective of a young person with Aspergers Syndrome.

Figuring Speech is part of an exhibitio of the same name which is on display at Hollytrees Museum in Colchester until the end of this year. Please click here for more information on Colchester Museums and Hollytrees Museum.
