The difficult choices involved with educating an autistic child are explored in this inspiring documentary. This video examines the limitations of "mainstreaming" while following Robin, a blonde four-year-old autistic child. While other children easily adapt and learn new tasks from hand-clapping or swinging, Robin is withdrawn and resistant. His teachers are committed to helping him, and they are sad to see him transferred to another school.
