Laurence is a `child out of time'. Born autistic and diagnosed with severe learning difficulties, he needs to learn how to survive in the alien world in which he finds himself. A world so frightening he built an impenetrable wall around him. Amid a failing marriage, his devoted father goes to great lengths to gain custody of his son.

Together with Laurence's younger sister, Bianca, he tries to break through into his world. Their efforts lead them all on many ventures and are rewarded by some amazing developmental awakenings. This true story will evoke tears, laughter and empathy with a father who only wants to make sense of his son's nonsensical world. As well as being a testament to his undying love, it is full of practical insights, and offers a unique understanding of autistic behaviour to those who find themselves encountering autistic reality.
