Guest Speaker: Steve Silberman, award-winning science writer and New York Times bestselling author of "NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity." "NeuroTribes" unearths the secret history of autism, long suppressed by the same clinicians who first became famous for discovering it, while also discovering surprising answers to the crucial question of why the number of diagnoses has soared in recent years. Silberman's articles have appeared in Wired, The New Yorker, MIT Technology Review, Nature, Salon, Shambhala Sun, and many other publications. The lecture is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Arneson Institute for Practical Politics and Public Affairs.
