Steve Silberman: The forgotten history of autism | TED Talk | TED.com

Interesting talk. It is a pity that he displays a chart from Autism Speaks early on and does not mention how they are trying to cure a difference in operating system that autistics do not want to be cured of. I like the quote towards the end where austistics describe non-neurodivergents as having missing abilities.
