14 October 2001 | by (British Columbia, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is by far one of the best t.v. movies I have ever seen. I saw A Circle of Children for the first time when I was about 7 years old. It proves that special needs children can do anything they choose to if people would just take time and have patience with them while they learn. I highly recommend seeing this movie if you ever get the chance. I would love to see it again.
