Actress and playwright Jody O'Neill discovered her son had autism when he was four years old.

As she came to terms with his diagnosis, she subsequently discovered that she too was autistic.

She has now written What I (Don't) Know About Autism, a play inspired by these experiences. It runs at the Abbey Theatre's Peacock Stage, followed by the Everyman in Cork and the Mermaid Arts Centre in Wicklow.

Jody joined us on The Last Word to discuss everything she has learned about autism.
