"This three-part film follows Phoebe Caldwell as she works with children who she has never met before and who have been selected because staff find them difficult to engage. It charts their journey from initial rejection to intimate interaction. Together with Penny Mytton, a teacher at the school where the film takes place, Phoebe demonstrates how, by using the child's own body language and sounds to create a 'language' that they recognise, a 'conversation' can be developed with children who are unable to use conventional communicative methods." - DVD COVER
