review NeuroTribes The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity Steve Silberman å 5 Free download NeuroTribes The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity Download ò 5 Going back to the earliest days of autism research and chronicling the brave and lonely journey of autistic people and their families through the decades Silberman provides long sought solutions to the autism puzzle while mapping out a path for our society toward a humane world in which people with learning differences and those who. First of all I thought that this book really needed a timeline in addition to its thorough notes and index so I spent an afternoon going through the book making one myself Command or Shift click here to read it in a new tab Commenting permission is open on it if you find any mistakesuick story from when I worked at Google James Watson the co discoverer of DNA was speaking at a Google event He talked about a wide variety of topics on genetics and I remember he lumped in autism and Aspergers with some other genetic disordersAt the A period after his talk several developers took the microphone identified themselves as having Aspergers and gave him an earful about how they were glad that they had Aspergers because it made them better developers gave them a uniue perspective on life and that they really didn t appreciate him looking for a cure thank you very muchMy reactions were 1 C mon guys this is the co discoverer of DNA Show some respect 2 Wow I guess the stereotype is trueEight years later my views on autism are somewhat nuanced And in the meantime Dr Watson has had to auction off his Nobel prize to supplement lost income after some very unfortunate comments about the people of AfricaNeurotribes is a very important book albeit a thick one Don t let the 500 pages plus notes and index scare you It is extremely readable and I finished it in less than a week I don t know if it will become the it book of popular science this fall but it certainly deserves toThat there are so many controversies swirling around autism diagnosing it what causes it whether we should focus on what causes it etc and that there is a bunch of stigma in general around autism is why this book is so neededAnd it is very even handed almost frustratingly so I saw one reviewer who was very upset that Jenny McCarthy was mentioned without being immediately condemned And she wanted Jim Carrey condemned too for good measureLook lady I understand your frustration with anti vaxxers but I m not wading through a 500 page polemic on any topic And I m willing to bet that if Mr Silberman went after the supplement cure guys similarly you would have been offended in a different way Like I said controversies aboundInstead Mr Silberman patiently moves through the history of autism starting in Vienna Asperger moving to Balti Kanner then Southern California Rimland and Lovaas then over to England Lorna Wing The pieces start to fit together You start to get something valuable than the satisfaction of having the other side condemned historical contextSo if someone tells you that there is an epidemic of autism you can point them to this book or Mr Silberman s TED talk Or you can just net it out for them like this To help kids get services they needed diagnostic criteria was widened At the same time standardized diagnostic tools became available for the first time As these changes filtered through the psychiatric community the number of diagnoses increased As far as can be determined the number of autistic people kids and adults has remained fairly constantAnd if someone tells you that vaccines cause autism point them to this book or TED talk too Optionally box their ears That part is up to youActually I reluctantly take back the ear boxing because with the benefit of historical context and after seeing just how twisted and jacked up the history of autism is it s easy to sympathize with parents in the absence of any leadership or even coherent guidance from the medical establishment Who can blame them for trying to take matters in to their own hands I was prescribed Vioxx after Merck knew about the risks so I m no pal of Big Pharma eitherUnfortunately rigorous adherence to statistical tests and being a concerned parent dealing with an n of 1 are pretty much mutually exclusive Combine that with the Baby Boomer s reflexive distrust of authority and things like the anti vax movement and autism clusters seem almost inevitable Though it s clear from this book that the roots of the anti vax movement go back almost two decades before Wakefield s notorious paperMr Silberman wisely shows this effect in action with a highly educated Bay Area couple that go through several stages on their journey in raising their autistic son with various stops including being against vaccines megadoses of multivitamins ABA therapy and even considering intravenous chelation I get it now Walk a mile in their shoes before you judge or Jenny McCarthy s dangerous though she may beIt s much harder to be sympathetic to the medical establishment especially the Freudians whose insights always sound like the worst writer in an a short story workshop But it s the Behaviorists who win the One Flew Over The Cuckoo s Nest prize hands down Dante s pope feet burning thingie is awaiting you Dr LovaasIt turns out that groups of parents are much effective at advocacy than medicine And that s where the story ticks upward towards hope Groups are formed Laws are passed Services are providedAgain with the benefit of historical context I know that eventually a major schism forms with one group focusing on advocacy and another focusing on a cure The latter is important to understand to be sure but let s leave that to the scientistsThe parts of the book about advocacy are really interesting to me because I know how hard it is to get accommodations even in a supposedly good school system It gets even interesting when autistic people find each other through newsletters then the Internet and start advocating for themselves and the concept of neurodiversity which brings us to the Google developers who so confidently uestioned a famous scientistMaybe the neurotypicals are really the problem here taking the autistic world s scientific breakthroughs and life changing applications for grantedLet s face it We live in a world where a scientific team lands a space probe on a comet going through space at 55kmph and most of the news coverage is about the damn shirt the lead scientist wore And just this week a kid brings a pencil box full of wires and electronics into his school in hopes of starting an engineering club obliviously shows it to a teacher and winds up handcuffed by five police officers for his protection It s like the X men but with superpowers that we can only guess atHighest recommendation especially for parents It s estimated that there are roughly as many autistic people as Jews And don t get hung up on high or low functioning You don t know what s going on insideMr Silberman is a wonderful writer and his prose goes down easy but Gibbon is even better and to date I haven t been able to get anyone to read Decline and Fall of the Roman EmpireWhile I appreciated all the background I would love to have an abridged version to share with less motivated readers I mean this book is so thorough that I was expecting a chapter just on fans of Gary Neumann Here in my car I feel safest of all I can lock all my doors It s the only way to live In cars
