Once regarded as a rare and obscure condition, autism now seems to be everywhere, attracting both fear and fascination. This talk looks at how can we understand the dramatic rise in the prevalence of autism and the high public profile it now enjoys. What are the consequences of the new age of autism, for individuals and families affected by this diagnosis, and for society?

Michael is the author of two books : MMR and Autism: What Parents Need To Know and Defeating Autism: A Damaging Delusion, both published by Routledge.
