“I have been really surprised about the comments I have read for this movie so far as they suggest many people may have been mistaken about what it is about. The movie is not specifically for children which is where some of the confusion potentially comes from (given it is based on childrenu0026#39;s books) because a lot of the heavy dialogue (and little action) may go over their heads.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTimmy is a little boy who is rather disruptive u0026amp; oblivious of most. His behaviour most likely however represents someone with high functioning autism spectrum disorder (unfortunately most comments so far suggest many people are unfamiliar with what this is). Timmy struggles with understanding what is going on around him u0026amp; in order to deal with his life, has created a world that makes sense to him.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe characters of Mr Jenkins, Crispin u0026amp; Patty are brilliant because they take Timmy seriously u0026amp; recognise that he is not meaning to be rude; quite to the contrary, he is trying his best to do what is right. What is fantastic about these characters is that they model strategies to help him be successful, without destroying his identity. The movie also highlights the importance of differentiated learning so that all individuals are able to engage (as opposed to Mr Crocusu0026#39; antiquated methods when dealing with atypical learners).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis movie is quietly affirming for those of us in close contact with children on the spectrum. It is a brilliant window into how the world might seem to them (u0026amp; be different to ours) and is a reminder that we need to have patience and that eventually, with persistence it will all make sense. The movie is refreshing because it Is realistic; it is confusing and awkward at times, just like life is for any child that is feeling uncertain.”
