Imagine a child of seven, quite beautiful, but who screams uncontrollably, cannot talk and cannot recognise her mother's love. Her body is perfect though her mind is not.
Fourteen years ago that was Ann Hodges , an autistic child born before the handicap was generally recognised. Today, through the remarkable devotion and strength of her family. Ann can read. write, talk, is affectionate - and wants a job. In the first part of this programme the Hodges tell the story of Ann's release from her very private world. But what is autism, what are the problems of diagnosis and treatment, and what help is available? That is the theme of the discussion which follows the story of Ann, between three experts on autism:
PR LORNA WING, member of the Scientific Staff of the Medical Research Council; DR NEIL O'CONNOR , Director of the MRC'S Developmental Psychology Unit; SYBIL ELGAR , headmistress of a school for autistic children. Presenter Joan Yorke
