All in the Mind on autism and autistic pride

Coombs_Danny1B.jpgThe lastest edition of BBC All in the Mind is a special on autism, discussing the experience, science and politics of the condition.

The programme talks to scientists and people affected by autism, including Wendy Lawson, a member of the growing Autistic Pride movement – which is trying to reframe autism as a part of normal neurodiversity rather than as a pathology in itself.

It also discusses the latest findings and theories of autistic abilities, disabilities and experience from the cognitive and neurosciences with psychiatrist Anthony Bailey and neuroscientist Helen Tager-Flusberg.
