TED Talk Steve Silberman: The Forgotten History of Autism

This short video taught me more than I can digest on Autism. Every parent needs to watch, the signs of bad behavior can also indicate symptoms on the Autism Spectrum.  XO M

One in every 68 people is on the autism spectrum — a condition that, even just a few decades ago, was rarely diagnosed. To understand the history of autism, says writer Steve Silberman, we have to go back even further, to an Austrian doctor by the name of Hans Asperger, who published a pioneering paper in 1944 on the “little professors” he was working with. Asperger’s paper was buried by war and time — and much crueler theories of autism prevailed. Follow Silberman’s journey as he uncovers the lost history of autism.
