Love in the Autism Spectrum




Breaking the usual early learner focus of this blog, I am happy to call attention to this New York Times piece about Jack and Kirsten's romantic relationship. On the autism spectrum. This is the second part of a series called Autism, Grown Up, by Pulitzer Prize winner Amy Harmon. 

Jack is John Elder Robinson's son (www.johnrobison.com). John Elder has brought us a much needed honest and unique (after all we are talking about autism spectrum disorder) account of what childhood and adulthood may look like to someone with his intelligence and social impairments. He very proudly twitted the article and a little later that it had been a most-read.
As John says, "woof!"
