A Conversation with Tony Atwood

Professor Tony Attwood is one of the world's leading experts on autism spectrum disorders. People with Asperger's can converse and live in the world but they see it through different eyes; much of what the rest of us see as normal behaviour is sometimes bewildering to them. Tony has done more than anyone to take us to the truth of what Asperger's really is. He's currently conducting research - Encouraging Friendship Skills in Children with Asperger's Syndrome - at the University of Queensland. Tony is Chairperson of Minds and Hearts, the Brisbane clinic set up to meet the enormous need for specialist services for people with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers. ============= You can either listen to each Conversations interview by clicking on the audio or you can download each interview as an mp3
