DON'T MOURN FOR US: Autism and Neurodiversity
For an excellent historical study of autism and the Neurodiversity Movement, see Steve Silberman’s NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity
(New York: Random House, 2015). Well-researched and totally accessible,
this work features not only detailed portraits of influential researchers,
dedicated parents and unique individuals on the spectrum but also a broader cultural understanding
of how this so-called syndrome relates to other historical events and movements.
