“The main treatment for Aspergers is self-understanding and self-acceptance. The trouble is that people will say that people suffer from Aspergers. No you don’t suffer from Aspergers, you suffer from other people. I want people to admire those with Aspergers syndrome, to say that it gives you talents. Don’t feel sorry for them, applaud them.” (Tony Attwood)
Following on from my previous post on Clay Marzo, here is a clip from the film “Clay Marzo: Just Add Water”, where Dr Tony Attwood and Dr Chitra Bhakta discuss characteristics of Asperger Syndrome.
