In A Different Key
In A Different Key The Story of Autism By Donvan, John Book - 2016

A comprehensive history of autism including the role of the medical community in defining and understanding the condition - the desperation, love, and extreme devotion of individual families, and the power of advocacy groups. Nice details included - 3 of the 4 Beatles spent hours playing with children at one of the first schools for autistic children in the UK. As part of the autism community I can highly recommend this book! I think everyone can probably appreciate this sentence that comes near the end "...having autism...represents but one more wrinkle in the fabric of humanity, and no one among us is living a life 'unwrinkled.'
