Professor Tony Attwood is one of the leading experts in the world on Asperger's Syndrome. Five years ago he found out that his son Will has the syndrome and somehow it hadn't been discovered. Will had been very overactive and difficult as a child and in his teenage years smoked marijuana and became addicted to drugs. This led to him being jailed and dependent on his family to support him.
