Autism and Us: Old as Time


Autism is old and unruly. It’s been a part of us since we first left handprints on cave walls 40,000 year­­s ago. AUTISM AND US covers a long-stretch view of its neurological history and how society has judged it. With quotes from old medical records, folk-tale beliefs, and Victorian literature, the book conjures up the 19th century­ mix of ignorance, cruelty, fumbling knowledge, and surprising love that led to the first medical recognition of autism as a social disorder. From that medically significant recognition has grown our present day neurological and cognitive understanding.

Eustacia Cutler, autism expert and mother of Dr. Temple Grandin, delivers a colorful and authentic account of the pioneers that forged the path for autism to gain understanding and acceptance in the world.
