Dancing helps boy with autism7th May 2010
Disco dancing has helped a 10-year-old boy who suffers from autism.
Until he began dancing, Jimmy Hobley used to wear splints on his legs to help his walking and, until less than two years ago, he could not read or write. But now he is competing for the Disco Kid championship in Blackpool, which is the biggest disco championship in Europe. Jimmy from Redcar on Teeside said dancing makes him feel normal and added "it's like somebody's fixed my brain inside".
