A History of Autism: My Conversations with the Pioneers

March 8, 2011
Adam Feinstein will be giving the lunchtime lecture at the Royal Society in London at 1 pm  on March 25, 2011. In this talk,  Feinstein will describe two fascinating journeys of discovery: his travels around the world for his new book, speaking to the key pioneers in the history of autism – including close colleagues and relatives of Leo Kanner and Hans Asperger – to investigate how the concept of the condition has evolved over the past 75 years; and his own remarkable personal voyage of understanding through his autistic son, Johnny. All welcome – it’s free!
