More than a few marvellous words on autism with Steve Silberman

Issue 14 of The SEND Practitioner published on Saturday 13 February.

Our in-depth discussion with the New York Times bestselling author of Neurotribes was well-received.

Steve Silberman tackled our readers’ questions with aplomb, discussing:

  • Whether a normal person can fully realise and understand the autistic day-to-day realisation of simply not belonging.
  • How SENCOs can best support secondary school autistic children in mainstream classes.
  • The merits of pursuing causation research.
  • The differences between genders vis a vis autistic traits.
  • The value of Asperger’s case studies for supporting personalisation in education.
  • Lorna Wing’s legacy.
  • The future of autism.
