Today is a bit of a strange and different post from usual. It is an urge for you to read Neurotribes by Steve Silberman. Neurotribes is a book on the history of autism. It takes you through the perils that Autistic individuals have faced, the wonderful aspects of Autism: including the development of the classic film Rainman, the atrocities committed under the Nazi regime and the MMR vaccination controversy. But, more importantly, it is a fascinating read that illustrates the trouble and the wonder in disability.
