Mum releases autism book

Have your say

the mum of an autistic child has released a new book.

Dr Mitzi Waltz, an academic at Sheffield Hallam University, says the book puts ‘people with autism and their carers at the heart of the discussion for the first time’.

It gathers insights from parents and autism sufferers instead of taking an academic approach.

Dr Waltz, whose son has autism, will give a talk about Autism: A Social and Medical History at the university’s Owen Building on Tuesday, April 16 from 6pm.
