TV documentary on autism: Richard & Jaco Take on the World

Recommended Posts

Sanctuary

If you're in the UK you may want to watch this documentary in which Richard and his son Jaco who has autism travel to find out the experiences of autistic people and some of the initiatives developed to give them more support. This includes going to the USA where one of their visits is to Sesame Street to find out about Julia, a recently introduced autistic character:

An earlier documentary more centred on Jaco is still available but only until this evening (UK time):

A couple of autistic people briefly featured in the new documentary have YouTube channels that you may want to check out if you haven't already seen them:

I watched part of the first one and its very good. I hadn't noticed your references to AA and II until I saw them on the programme. Katy has replied to at least one comment I made on her channel and I would like to have gone to Sara's Autism Pride event in Chester on Saturday but it clashes with an event that's not been to the UK in years. Frustrating as AP is normally in June when I'm too full of hayfever.
