Asking fundamental questions about how we bring up children with autism, the film follows three-year-old Jack and four-year-old Jeremiah. They are starting their first term at Treetops School in Essex, the only state school in the UK which uses ABA (Applied Behaviour Analysis), a controversial and intensive intervention used to treat autism. Their parents have high hopes of this ‘tough love’ approach, but critics argue that it is dehumanising and abusive to try to eliminate autistic behaviour. This complex film asks big questions about education and how society should respond to people with autism.
Followed by panel discussion.
