In this fascinating and emotional film child psychologist Laverne Antrobus investigates the way in which the brain develops in children on the autistic spectrum. By exploring the latest science we ...gain a new understanding of how and why the autistic brain works in the way it does. Laverne spends time with autistic children and their families, not just to observe, but to gain a firsthand understanding of the different way in which their brains are functioning and the heart wrenching struggles that this can lead to when trying to cope with 'typical' society.
