Temple Grandin talks about the latest autism science. When she was born in 1947, autism had only just been named. Today, one in 88 children diagnosed on the spectrum, and autism studies have moved from the realm of psychology to neurology and genetics, and there is far more hope today than ever before thanks to groundbreaking new research into causes and treatments. Her book The Autistic Brain, brings her singular perspective to an exploration of innovative theories of what causes autism and how we can diagnose and best treat it.
Temple Grandin discusses her thoughts on the expanding autism spectrum, the supposed link between vaccines and autism, and her new book "The Autistic Brain: Thinking Across the Spectrum."
The Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM) is a dictionary that defines and classifies all mental health disorders. First published in 1952, the DSM is used by everyone from clinicians to pharmaceutical companies to policy makers. Since its inception, the DSM has been revised only four times — one such occasion was in 1980 when homosexuality was no longer defined as a mental disorder. In the fifth edition, another big change may come to the DSM. Autism is up for a redefinition which could potentially reduce the number of people considered "autistic" by half.
