The Curious Incident and The Legend of Mickey Tussler are also interesting works that are invaluable to anyone who is interested in Aspergers

A different view of autism can be read, for free, at http://30145.myauthyorsite.com/

Perhaps many of us are acquiring a smidgen of autism. Autism is a collection of behaviours, and if we have any understanding of the physical causes of behaviours, it is an extremely primitive and rudimentary understanding. Psychological speculations about behaviour don't even attempt to address physical causes. Why do so many of the parents of autistic children share very same personality traits said to define autism? These parents are often high functioning and are obviously not abnormal. It does seem obvious that autism includes many causes and many abnormalities. I suggest that those children with a certain personality (non conformist, lacking in intuitive abilities, analytical minds, socially untalented, etc) are labelled autistic. Children whose defect may have a similar cause, but are intuitive and have lots of social talents, are labelled something else. It is nonconformity that is on the increase, not autism.
