Opening His Eyes to the World A Story of a Boy and Autism (Part 1)
This is the first section of the documentary "Opening his Eyes to the World," which follows the birth, development and treatment of a young child with autism spectrum disorder. In this prologue, Wells' parents comment on home video of the first year of Wells' life, in which he appeared more verbal and connected than he would in the years following.
"I was surprised to see how much eye contact and communication he had in the early, early years...You could see him responding to your voice. There was no reason to suspect anything was out of the ordinary."
— Robert, Father of Wells
