Found in Translation

Is Asperger’s syndrome the next stage of human evolution?

Professor Tony Attwood believes the “out of the box” thought processes of people on the autism spectrum will solve the world’s big problems.

He is credited with being the first clinical psychologist to present Asperger’s syndrome not as something to be “fixed ” but as a gift, evidenced in many of the great inventors and artists throughout history.

Professor Attwood is highly regarded for his ability to connect with and bring out the talents of people with Asperger’s. He describes himself as a translator between the “neurotypical” and Asperger’s worlds.
