Kristien Hens succeeds in weaving together experiential expertise of both people with autism and their parents, scientific insights and ethics, and does so with great passion and affection for people with autism (with or without mental or other disabilities). In this book she not only asks pertinent questions, but also critically examines established claims that fail to take into account the criticism and experiences of people with autism.
author of Autistic Gelukkig (Garant, 2018) and Gedurfde vragen (Garant, 2020)
This book contributes to the current raging discussion over society’s view of autism and the examination of the concept’s realis_x0002_tic and ethical significance. The author successfully fulfils the goal of incorporating rich experiences from all angles of knowledge and delivering the unheard voices of autistic individuals to readers through both major queries and ger_x0002_mane assertions on the unexplained part of criticism directed at autistic people.
