What happens on Series 2 of The A-Word?
The show’s second season picks up two years after the first season.
Now aged seven, Joe has begun to look at the world and finds that he doesn’t fit in. "Autistic" is a word he has heard but can’t yet understand.
"Different" is what he feels, and fears might be something bad.
It is up to the whole family to help Joe make sense of who he is and his place in the world.
But to do that, they must first be honest about themselves.
The six-part drama revisits the funny, messy, mixed-up lives of the Hughes and Scott families as they struggle to do their best as parents, carers, lovers… and to work out what’s really important in the face of nothing ever feeling normal.
BBC The show has proved to be a big hit
