I just listened to this broadcast of Speaking Faith with Krista Tippet: "Being Autistic, Being Human" and found it fascinating. I highly recommend it!
From the website:
"One child in every 110 in the U.S. is now diagnosed to be somewhere on the spectrum of autism. We step back from public controversies over causes and cures and explore the mystery and meaning of autism in one family's life, and in history and society. Our guests say that life with their child with autism has deepened their understanding of human nature — of disability, and of creativity, intelligence, and accomplishment."
