Abuse, education and disability in the community
Community clip
Clip from The Black Balloon  |  ABC  |  December 20, 2014

Walking to school, Thomas is forced to pass a group of local boys behaving abusively to a girl on Charlie's bus. Moments later, Charlie runs up to give Jackie a hug and the same group begin to taunt Charlie and Thomas. The situation escalates as Charlie becomes over stimulated and afraid. The behaviour of the students and teachers highlight a disastrous lack of education around disability in the wider community. Jackie gives Thomas a birthday present and tries to support his conflicted feelings.
