Life in the Spectrum

Reading this article about autism made me grateful. I'm grateful that my own son's condition is so mild, but grateful also that someone has articulated so clearly what it's like to coexist with such a child.

Interestingly, I just read an article in the New Yorker about a neuroscientist, Vilayanur S. Ramachandran, who is looking at autism, among other disorders, in light of brain structure and neuronal organization. This link is to an abstract, but the article itself is good reading if you care to register (It's free).

I read the first article-- what she described matched what I saw in the preschool classroom.
