54:32 Our son is 4, and was diagnosed with ASD a year ago. We are currently living in a region with very poor education, and both my husband and I remember how autistic kids were treated when we were in school, not that long ago and not that far away. We are afraid he won't be able to reach his highest potential if we stay, or worse, for his education to make this brilliant kid believe he isn't good enough for anything. We have been talking about moving, but my parents are retired and take care of him while we work. They are fantastic, and he has a great relationship with them. We are afraid of him losing this connection and withdrawing. They cannot afford to move with us. I know everyone has a different case, and we must decide for ourselves, but has anyone here been faced with a similar choice? What did you decide, and how did it turn out? Thank you very much! Edit: We are thinking about moving overseas.
