Interesting documentary from 1983:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTCSfx47R1w

Things that struck me (I whited it out in case it spoils anything, you can highlight it to read it):

1) "Treatment" at Elan School. That school was apparently very controversial.

2) The suggestion of a possible lobotomy. I thought those ended in the 60s or 70s.

3) Brian's Dad. Wonderful man.

4) The way some of the kids at the end of the video were treated, and the seeming lack of justice.

5) The teacher with all of those autistic children. What also struck me was the narrator talking about causes of autism. We still don't really know.


Sad documentary, but really informative, even today.

There is some bad language, so might be NSFW.
