  • My tutors saw potential        Luke found support at a local university.      I live in Luton with my parents and the University of Bedfordshire is quite close, so I applied for a foundation degree there.
  • Here is a BBC interview with two students, Tom and Kirsty, who are on the spectrum called:  The autistic me.       I wanted to show people that I was happier after the first show made me look unhappy and depressed.       I wanted to show other people with autism are the same as normal people and can get on okay.
