My Autism and Me wins an Emmy Kids Award

  • 9 February 2013

Newsround's special programme about living with autism has won Best Factual Programme at the 2013 International Emmy Kids Awards.

My Autism and Me looks at what it's like to live with autism, a condition that affects the way you live your life and see the world around you.

Rosie, the film's presenter, told Newsround it was really good to win the award and wanted to thank the other boys who feature in the film.

Rosie was born with autism, and says even though living with it is hard, it makes her unique and who she is.
