In Autism poses daily challenges the Rockhampton Morning Bulletin reports on some of the challenges facing the Filmer family in Queensland, Australia whose 3 sons have all been diagnosed with autism. All three have different levels of difficulty with communications:
ANDREW, 7, appears to be a very normal child, but he struggles to participate and is lagging behind his peers.
Douglas, 5, doesn't really know how to speak at all and communicates through a picture book and sign language.
And Rory, 3, can't always find the right words to use and is confused about how to interact with others.
