Autism

The October issue of The Psychologist is given over to autism. It includes an article on cultural representations of autism (e.g. in fiction and film) by Prof. Douwe Draissma of Groningen (Theory and History of Psychology). The Psychologist is pitched at the level of interested readers as well as professionals. Many university students have diagnoses that place them on the autistic spectrum, but unfortunately what most people know about autism is fairly vague if not inaccurate.
