Finding a Way: Luke, Carl and Matthew

Synopsis
The path of child development can be affected by a number of factors. This programme follows three boys who share the challenge of neurological conditions. They influence their personal behaviour and dramatically impact on their everyday lives. Luke Washington is six years old and has been diagnosed as having Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD which affects his ability to concentrate and the way he behaves. Carl Robinson is sixteen and was diagnosed with ADHD when he was seven. He went on to develop Tourette Syndrome which has had a dramatic impact on his life. For fourteen year old Matthew, life is getting harder as he gets older. He has severe Tourettes, which manifests itself in extreme physical behaviour.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
