New approaches to treating autism in France

Around one out of every 100 children in France is affected by some form of autism. That adds up to some 650,000 people in total. But only about 20 percent of autistic children in France attend mainstream school, compared to almost 100 percent in Italy. Today a new plan is being debated in a bid to improve the situation. Our reporters look at why France is lagging behind when it comes to treating autism and how things could change.

A programme prepared by Van Meguerditchian and Jessica Sestili
