Series in which child psychologist Laverne Antrobus explores how child development is affected by three major developmental disorders. Here, Laverne tries to discover the different way that the brain works in children with autism and to explore the latest scientific research. She meets youngsters from different ends of the autistic spectrum, including Tony, a severely autistic teenager who requires full-time care from his family, and Jake, who has been diagnosed with high functioning autism - the opposite end of the spectrum to Tony. These powerful stories are intermingled with interviews with leading scientists in the field that help to further illuminate this condition. Laverne also investigates exciting and pioneering research being carried out at Birkbeck Babylab, which is offering hope in the future for a simpler and earlier diagnostic procedure
