Exploring the Experience of Autism through Firsthand Accounts.
Cesaroni, Laura; Garber, Malcolm
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v21 n3 p303-13 Sep 1991
Two firsthand accounts from verbal high-functioning individuals with autism (a 27-year-old man and a 13-year-old boy and his parents) are presented. Five salient themes are identified: sensory processing, memory, stereotypical behaviors, social interaction, and empathy. Multichanneled sensory processing appeared in both subjects as did a detailed memory of past events. (Author/DB)
