Ryszard is the father of ten-year-old twins - Agnieszka and Eryk. From the first days of their children’s lives he has been struggling with their daughter’s health problems. For many years the girl has had to undergo rehabilitation. At the age of three, Agnieszka was diagnosed with atypical autism. This started a long-term daily treatment both at home and in numerous kindergartens, supplemented by therapeutic periods away from home. Agnieszka’s father speaks of her as "a very gentle and trusting girl, and probably if she could speak freely, she would be very open". Ryszard, the parent of an autistic child, will talk about the concerns and challenges facing children with autism and their families.
