If not, are there two or more types of human being mistakenly grouped into a single species?Neurodiversity is a spectrum. Tha [...]

    2. This was an interesting book. Unlike a lot of other autism discourse I've come across, the author focuses primarily on the different ways that people diagnosed with autism may experience the world sensorily. She strongly argues that this perception of the world is as much "reality" as the "normal" perception of the world. I appreciated her argument, and I think that it's one that we need to pay more attention to.I was somewhat amused by how much of her information about autism and sensory percep [...]

    3. What a brilliant book. Many many faceted. You will look at the way you relate to the world again and question your most basic assumptions after you have read this.
