Being Different May Be Cool – On The Autistic Spectrum

Follow the learning experiences of three autistic brothers Dealing with children on the autistic spectrum is an important and challenging issue for both special and mainstream schools. And for those children school life may be a ‘blooming, buzzing confusion of uncertainty’. This programme presents an honest account of life with autism, from the perspective of Luke, Joe and Ben, all of whom have the disorder, including their views on school and education.

Their mother Jacqui is outspoken and articulate about how teachers can support pupils with these difficulties and the boys are extremely candid about how their autism affects them. Jacqui and the boys share their experiences and feelings about living on the autistic spectrum and the teachers who are working with Joe and Ben explain how they ensure the boys are included in school life.
