Mother's book highlights living with autism

A mother of 18-year-old twins who have severe autism has written a book to help other families in a similar situation. Jenny Ross from Bournemouth hopes that her book - My Amazing House of Autism - will also help the wider community to understand the disability. During the week Mark and Nathaniel are boarders at The Sheiling School near Ringwood.

It's not a sanitised book. It shows all the ups and downs of living with autism."
