Autism: A Fresh Look

I first posted information on autism on June 24, 2010 with Loving Lampposts - A Movie About Autism. Next came Neurodiversity posted August 26, 2016 and then, Neurodiversity: A most Important Word & Topic, which was posted March 31, 2017 and featured Steve Silberman's popular TED Talk and his precious book NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity.

Now, here is a thoughtful and first-hand TED Talk account of autism "What it's really like to have autism," Ethan Lisi's beautiful, personal story he presented in February 2020. This is so good.
