INTRODUCING: PACTT'S 2017 WORK OF HEART AWARD WINNER

Steve Silberman, author of NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity

Steve Silberman, author of NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity

Steve Silberman is an award-winning science author who has attempted to transform the way people perceive and think about individuals with autism. Breaking through stereotypes, Steve dares to offer a view of what is possible for people challenged by this unique disability. In his New York Times bestselling book Neuro Tribes, The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity, Steve offers a detailed history of the vastly different theories of American child psychiatrist Leo Kanner and Austrian pediatrician Hans Asperger. Steve shines a bright light on the way each defined the scope of autism and the resultant effect on the autistic community over the years.

Steve Silberman has exposed the many myths about autism, from the darkness of blaming parents to the “autism epidemic” of the last twenty-five years. He chooses to look beyond common deficit-based assumptions and celebrate the gifts that people with autism bring to our lives. Steve’s compassionate view towards individuals with autism and their potential for a rich, meaningful life echoes the work that we do every day at PACTT. 

PACTT proudly honors Steve Silberman for his fresh perspective on the
disability of autism and his passionate belief that people with autism are a rich source of different thinking and should be celebrated for their gifts to society.
