Overview

   Speaker: Adam Feinstein

In this talk, Adam Feinstein will describe two fascinating journeys of discovery: his travels around the world for his new book, speaking to the key pioneers in the history of autism - including close colleagues and relatives of Leo Kanner and Hans Asperger - to investigate how the concept of the condition has evolved over the past 75 years; and his own remarkable personal voyage of understanding through his autistic son, Johnny.
