The Autistic Society and Its Classrooms
Wagner, Paul A.; Benavente-McEnery, Lillian
Educational Forum, v72 n4 p319-328 2008
Autistic means a subject has limited affect or may be without affect altogether. Though traditionally individuals are described as autistic, the authors find it increasingly apparent that American society is becoming autistic as a whole, as citizens are desensitized to needs of neighbors near and far, losing the commensurate loyalty of being in community. This essay suggests that classrooms must be on the front line of challenging the effects of an increasingly autistic society.
