Should be made available to institutions and teachers
6 September 2009 | by (Mentor, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I only saw the very end of it but made a point to record it it will be on one of the Encore stations again on 9/18 It should be made available to Teachers, Families of Autistic children for a movie 30 years old it just shows you how a loving family can make a difference all I can say is I work with special needs children and this movie would help me understand the kids I am working with. I have dealt with children who have varying degrees of autism it truly should be made available as well as the Novel to Schools, hospitals and other institutions basically I see this film as a Great Teaching tool if it is not used already I just happened upon it by accident This movie as well as other made for TV Movies can help in many ways the networks that produced them should make them available So many of them are forgotten

there are many movies that I saw in School that I have made a point to find or see again.

Such as Rickie Ticky Tavie Bang the Drum Slowly Movies are for entertainment but also can be used as teaching tools
