8/22/07: Parallel Play
Salt Lake City, UT – Though some support groups refer to it as "neurodiversity," a life lived with Asperger's Syndrome is - in the words of Tim Page - lived "alongside, but distinctly apart from, the rest of humanity." It wasn't until his mid-40s that Page, the Pulitzer-prize winning classical-music critic for The Washington Post, was diagnosed with Asperger's. Wednesday on RadioWest, Doug talks to Tim Page about the preoccupations, the social isolation and even the advantages of this autistic condition.
