We’ve just added a recording of the ITV programme Girls with Autism to our collection. Over 30% of our learners at Hillcroft come with a disability/learning disability so this programme gave us useful insight into how young women handle autism and learning.

It focuses also on their teachers and parents and their learning as well as their social lives. Read more details on the ITV press release.
