- In this empowering lecture, Professor Tony Attwood discusses the defining characteristics of 'Aspies' - people with Asperger's Syndrome - and how these change from early childhood to the adult years and vary according to gender.
- Professor Attwood challenges you to imagine life through the eyes of an Aspie, and recognise the invaluable and unique contribution they make to society1 and intellectual development.
- I happened upon this lecture by accident and spent the 30 minutes listening to it while waiting for processes to run updating my database.
- I’ve often wondered whether I fall within the Asperger’s spectrum myself; I tried the Barron-Cohen test once, and I was on the border.
- However, while there are some similarities between the DSM5 characteristics and my perception of my own personality, it’s hardly an exact match.
