  • STAYING IN THE FAMILY

    After having read Mr Kieron's "The politics of Down syndrome" and now having just finished Mr Silberman's book I strongly believe that these kids with special educational needs should be kept in the mainstream schools. More important is that the society embracing these beautiful kids. Nobody, none of us has the right to marginalize these children and their parents, whom only need our love and support. It's a wonderful book. Anecdotes of parents were perfect,giving the reader a sense about what the parents are going through. It was also interesting to learn that London group was ahead US academics who were under the spell of Dr Kanner for decades.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Good, educational read

    I loved this book! It was the best book I read of 2017. From the history of autism, to autism activism today it covers everything.

  • Very dry read

    I was quite disappointed in this book. I was really looking forward to some insightful suggestions based on real-time current thinking. But it just read like a dry textbook or historical documentary which was very heavy on the details. Glad I got it on sale!
