It's well known that people with autism can have a hard time expressing themselves -- and that can make it tough to explain what it's like to have the condition.

But Andy Kwiatkowski gives his take on living with autism in a short film he made at the Youth Documentary Academy where he lives in Colorado Springs. Kwiatkowski talks about the challenges he's faced making friends, his unusual behaviors and his efforts to cope with them.

Kwiatkowski and his mother Carrie speak with Colorado Matters host Andrea Dukakis.
