Wendy Lawson has long been respected as a writer and speaker on autism from an ‘insider’ perspective and already has a number of publications to her credit. In her latest book based upon her doctoral research, she critiques the dominant psychological theories that have come to define autism, and puts forward an alternative cognitive model, namely: Single attention and associated cognition in autism (SAACA).
