its really good! deffo worth a watch!

I think it helps highlight some of the problems people may not be aware of, i work in a school with his a high asd pupil count so come across it regularly but this gives a god insight into home life ect

indeed. people would often see children (even adults) behaving somewhat stranger than usual and just laugh at them not knowing or realising that they could be suffering with some sort of autism or similar!

hopefully people will learn from this program!!

my lil cousin didnt say a word until he was 3 and a half.....but he was amazing at sign language...he talks now and he still uses sign language alot!

I've just started watching it by chance now. First impressions are that it seems to be balanced and informative. This is a complicated, varied, and largely misunderstood condition. Seems like this programme is approaching it in the right way.

The only thing that is annoying me is the lack of direction given to the people running it, i know there is a specialist there but the approach and negative attitude about the children's ability to perform is a little off-putting!

Damn i missed it :x dont suppose anyone recorded it and can burn it to disc for me ?
