Unlocking Autistism
Discovery Home and Health  |  November 13, 2009

Taking a driving test is something that everyone can relate to. It is a stressful rite of passage for all young people but even more so for autistic people with low self-confidence and poor social skills. Driving represents the independence they often find so difficult to achieve in the rest of their lives. This counter intuitive film follows young characters with autism at different stages along the journey towards learning to drive including the dramatic build up to their theory and practical tests.
