12/19/08: Parallel Play
Salt Lake City, UT – Friday on RadioWest we're rebroadcasting our conversation about Asperger's syndrome. It's a kind of mild from of autism which is just now coming to be understood. Our guest is Tim Page, the Pulitzer Prize winning music critic for the Washington Post. It wasn't until the year 2000 that Page was told he had Asperger's. He said the diagnosis came as a relief. He was able to explain his life spent, he says, living along-side, but distinctly apart from the rest of humanity. (Rebroadcast)
