Video:Remrovs World of Autism- Autistic Savant Responds to The Good Doctor – Scene: Shaun Can’t Find Screwdriver

In this video Remrov responds to a scene from The Good Doctor in which Shaun can’t find his screwdriver. Remrov completely relates to what Shaun is going through and why he is so upset. He explains why autistic people get so extremely upset when they lose items.

Remrov is a huge fan of ‘The Good Doctor’, a TV show created by David Shore, and broadcasted by ABC in the US and CTV in Canada. The cast is amazing, it includes: Freddie Highmore, Nicholas Gonzalez, Antonia Thomas, Richard Schiff, and many more: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6470478/
