- Programme Name
- TTT Film Screening: ‘This is Nicholas – Living with Autism Spectrum Disorder’
- Summary of Topics Covered
- Nicholas Ryan-Purcell was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome aged thirteen. He was also faced with mental health challenges, brought on by an early childhood trauma which triggered a lengthy depression. Nicholas overcame a series of obstacles to complete his Leaving Certificate and then undertake and graduate from a three-year course in TV Production at Ballyfermot College Dublin.
Now aged 28 Nicholas’s mental health challenges are a thing of the past. He has made this documentary to chronicle his experience of living with Asperger Syndrome and depression and to celebrate the invaluable support of his family, his teachers and his neighbours in the village of Emly, Co Tipperary.
This is a brave and inspirational piece of work, made with clarity and insight by an insider, to greatly enhance our understanding of Asperger Syndrome.
