Understanding Autism Through "Neurotribes"
We use the term "autism" more and more all the time... especially since the numbers of people with the condition continue to grow. But could you define it?
Steve Silberman, a reporter for "WIRED," aims to answer that question and more in his book NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity.
He delves into history, diagnosis, and even a portrait of Hans Asperger, for whom the syndrome is named.
Silberman joins us with highlights of his research.
