History of Autism

Todays reading introduced the medical condition of Autism. One point that I found interesting was the idea that Autism is never the same from patient to patient. Rather, the text explained that some struggled with numbers and memorization while others were extremely gifted in their quantitative abilities. I thoroughly enjoyed Howe’s point that those with Autism should not be claimed as “idiots” because some were extremely proficient in areas such as reading and musical abilities.
