In America nearly one in a hundred children are diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, a staggering increase from only 20 years ago, and babies and toddlers are now routinely tested for evidence of this brain disorder that is mainly characterised by an inability to socialize and communicate. Louis travels to DLC Warren in New Jersey, one of the most innovative schools of its kind in the U.S., to find out how specialised intervention can help. He explores the impact of having an autistic child on families and sees how they cope with some of the more challenging aspects of the disorder while trying to maintain a normal family life. He meets children at different transitional points in their lives from the early years to early adulthood and witnesses first hand some of the strange and sometimes wonderful ways in which they perceive the world about them.
