"Autism’s First Child"

is the title of an extraordinary article in the current issue of The Atlantic. The authors are both eloquent and sensitive; Donald, the subject, was generous to allow interviews that must have been somewhat stressful. The remarkable community in which he lives is a paradigm of acceptance of what and who’s “different.” You’ll also find it interesting for what it says about current thinking on autism, which may lead you to think about how your own mind works.
