Description

This New York Times bestselling book breaks conventional thinking about autism and suggests a broader model for acceptance, understanding, and full participation in society for people who think differently, not less.

Going back to the earliest autism research and chronicling the brave and lonely journey of autistic people and their families through the decades, this book provides long-sought solutions to the autism puzzle while casting light on the growing movement of 'Neurodiversity' and mapping out a path towards a more humane world for people with learning differences. The author unearths the secret history of autism, long suppressed by the same clinicians who became famous for discovering it, and finds surprising answers to the crucial question of why the number of diagnoses has soared in recent years.

Why we recommend this book 
Reading this book has been both an intense experience and reawakening sometimes emotional. A well-researched, readable book on the treatment of autism that explores its history and proposes significant changes for its future, a required reading for every parent, teacher, therapist, and person who wants to know more about autism in a little bit of academic side.
