DIRECTED BY ISABELLA DJALILI

When Sarah Ziegel's twin boys were diagnosed with autism, aged almost three, she realised that there was very little practical information about what to do. When her next two children were also diagnosed with the condition, she was even more determined to put that lack of information right. This documentary is the result of Sarah's experiences of dealing with autism in the family. While covering personal aspects such as coping emotionally with a diagnosis, the film also tackles practical matters, such as education and the EHCP process, how to get help and support, and also considers the medical side of autism. Told by a former nurse, and full-time mother and carer, Coping With Autism is a highly sensitive and professional guide and is the documentary you will want to watch when faced with a diagnosis, or if you simply want to find out more about the condition. 

Screening 29 November 2016 at London College of Communication
