Autism and ethics of inclusion

Autism and the ethics of inclusion, by Ari Ne’eman.  What it means to be “different” in society, when different is often seen as “wrong”.  He also discusses Ivor Lovaas’s goal for autistic children- “to be indistinguishable from their peers” and questions whether that’s a meaningful goal.  Some great points here!
