I didn’t know anybody but I thought: ‘I have to be myself and try’, after all everybody was new just like me weren’t they? By the time the Film Academy finished I felt like I’d made loads of new friends, had loads of fun and had worked independently as part of the epic team of all time.

When I took him to the first session I remember meeting the staff and breathing a sigh of relief when it became clear how much experience and understanding they had of working with people with disabilities and autism. When you’ve got that bit covered – well that’s when all the good things happen isn’t it?
