Earlier this week, NPR host Krista Tippett interviewed writer Jennifer Elder and literary historian Paul Collins, who have grappled with autism since the diagnosis of their son, Morgan, in 2002. Paul has traced autism hidden between the lines of history. Jennifer has written and illustrated books for children with autism. In this podcast, they look beyond controversies over causes and cures and explore what autism reveals about humanity and their families. They discuss research that raises questions about the remarkable abilities associated with autism and the high prevalence of autism among families of scientists, mathematicians, and artists. We’d love to hear your thoughts.
