Scientists Reconsider What They Think They Know About Autism (Wired Magazine)

Here's a new article just out from Wired Magazine that I think you will find very interesting. It starts to ask the question of whether there isn't far more intelligence in nonverbal people with autism than is currently thought. I predict we will be starting to see more coverage of this subject in the media in the coming year and beyond. I hope and believe that we are at the beginning of a new era of understanding and research about this incredibly urgent matter.
