You may remember the story of the schoolboy form Leeds - whose pet corgi was credited with turning his life around - after he was diagnosed with aspergers syndrome.
14 year old Nick Gilling from Leeds was so badly affected - he would hide under his bed - because of his anxieties about going out in public. After we featured him on Calendar, his story went global - and he's now become an ambassador for people with autism. Michael Billington reports.
The first ever Kirklees Autism Show is being launched by the Council this month in a campaign to improve understanding of the condition.
A new webpage is also being created by Kirklees Council, which will contain support information and a film addressing prejudice towards people with Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC).
The event will take place at Huddersfield Town Hall on Tuesday October 29 from 2pm.
This is the new music video from Rory Hoy and Kitten and the Hip.
Rory, from Knaresborough, helped families around the world with his film, Autism and Me.
Rory Hoy first appeared on Calendar when he made a film explaining what it's like to to have autism.
That was five years ago. Now the teenager, from North Yorkshire, is making a name for himself in the music industry.
The DJ and music producer has made a video with Ashley Slater, who was in a band with Fatboy Slim. In fact their band, Freak Power, had a number three single with "Turn On, Tune In, Cop Out".
The pair are now called Rory Hoy vs Kitten and the Hip - and their single is out now.
A mother from Grimsby, who launched a legal challenge to try to stop her autistic son's support service from closing, says it will be a lifeline lost when it shuts it's doors for the final time at the end of this month.
North East Lincolnshire Council, who operate 'Asdrel', say alternative support is already available in the area. But Denise and her son Thomas are concerned future children with special needs could be put into schools which lack the ability to offer individual care. Kate Hemingway reports:
A mother has taken legal action to try and keep her autistic son's former support service open in Grimsby, saying it'll be a lifeline lost if it closes.
Denise Portus says although her 12 year old son Thomas has settled in well at a new school, future generations with autism will miss out because Asdrel, which is due to close at the end of this month, provides more one on one care.
Thomas also now has a half an hour trip to school instead of five minutes and has been forced to leave many of his friends behind.
Nick Gilling from Yeadon near Leeds says it is easier to cope with his autism after his new pet dog Sally helped him to build his confidence.
