Living with a diagnosis on the autism spectrum comes with gifts and trials that the world is fast learning to appreciate as neurodiversity becomes better understood across the globe. For South Africans on the spectrum, detection and management have lagged and children most often struggle with limitations in the support they need to thrive. Carte Blanche follows the path of 19-year-old Dylan Kritzinger from primary school to matric – a young man who loves drama and animals and is set on becoming a game ranger. When doctors diagnosed him with autism 10 years ago, his mother was led to believe that he would never be able to tie his own shoelaces nor utter a full sentence. But with the support of family, teachers and friends, Dylan recently matriculated – another steppingstone on the way to realising his dreams.
