What is autism?

That’s the question I got why’ll I was headed to work the other day. Too bad I didn’t have a copy of this article entitled “Seeing the Spectrum: A new history of autism” by  over at the New Yorker Magazine.

I have to say, I was a little tongue tied as to how to describe it, especially since I am the father of a sixteen year old with autism. Maybe after I read this article, I’ll have a better way to respond.
