High School Senior Thrives OnstageThe Autism Site
Chris Cameron, a high school senior in Colorado Springs, is autistic. But that didn’t stop him from landing a supporting role in Pine Creek High School’s production of “How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”
Being on stage has had a tremendous impact on Chris. Not only has it increased his confidence, but it’s helped with his light and noise sensitivity as well. He’s forged new, meaningful friendships and has been an inspiration to the cast. His cast mates call him “the hardest working man in show biz” and have affectionately given him the nickname “DJ” because of his vast music knowledge.
Take a look at this video to hear more from Chris and his cast mates.
