Extreme Love – Autism

Earlier this week I highlighted on The Toy Bug Facebook page the program recently shown on ABC 2 that was made by Louis Theroux called Extreme Love – Autism.  The program is about some of the challenging circumstances that are faced by parents with children with an autism spectrum disorder as they grow older.

In particular they focus on a mother who has a 13 year old son who can have explosive tantrums, a 19 year old who is about to leave school as well as a 20 year old who is severely autistic, sets the house on fire and attacks his mother.

In addition, the program also visits an innovative school in the USA to find out how specialised intervention can help.

The program is powerful viewing whether you have an autistic child or not.  I encourage everyone to watch and learn.
