Autism and the Myth of the Person Alone

Douglas Biklen
Contributors: Richard Attfield, Larry Bissonnette, Lucy Blackman

Doug Biklen challenges the idea that people with autism purposely isolate themselves from society. He builds his case by presenting people with autism, who author their own story.

This book challenges the prevailing, tragic narrative of impairment that so often characterizes discussions about autism.
