History of Autism and the Neurodiversity Movement
The history of autism is wrought with controversy and questions about how it develops and how to treat it. The idea of autism as a disease is also being called into question by the neurodiversity movement, which advocates for the idea that autism's neurological differences are the result of natural human variation rather than a pathological disorder.
