Program #60 – Part 2 Conversation with Barry Prizant, PhD – Author of Uniquely Human: A Different Way of Seeing Autism 1st Edition

Listen to our conversation with Dr. Barry Prizant, the author of the innovative book Uniquely Human. Dr. Prizant suggests a new and compelling way of thinking about Autism. He offers a powerful paradigm: the most successful approaches to autism don’t aim at changing or eliminating the unwanted behaviors, but rather at understanding their causes. Dr. Prizant’s Uniquely Human promotes a compassionate understanding of the condition and presents a range of strategies to cope with a world that feels overwhelming.

His book has been hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “A groundbreaking book on autism, by one of the world’s leading experts, who portrays autism as a unique way of being human—this is required reading….Breathtakingly simple and profoundly positive”.
