Syracuse http://iowapublicradio.org en Autism As Diversity http://iowapublicradio.org/post/autism-diversity <p>Most view Autism as a devastating disorder- one that needs to be cured&mdash;but could it be viewed as a form of diversity? We listen back to Ben Kieffer&rsquo;s conversation with two Grinnell residents, Emily Thornton Savarese and Ralph James Savarese, parents of an autistic child. They are the editors of a special issue of Disabilities Studies Quarterly entitled &quot;Autism and the Concept of Neurodiversity&quot;.&nbsp;Then, a Syracuse college student diagnosed with Autism joins the conversation.</p> Fri, 10 Aug 2012 17:01:51 +0000 Ben Kieffer 6112 at http://iowapublicradio.org Autism As Diversity
