Horizon: Living with Autism (BBC2)

Milton, Damian (2014) Horizon: Living with Autism (BBC2). Review of: Horizon: Living with Autism (BBC2) by UNSPECIFIED. Autonomy, the Critical Journal of Interdisciplinary Autism Studies, 1 (3). p. 1. ISSN 2051-5189. (KAR id:62720)


The programme began with Uta Frith explaining how she became interested in the field of autism, and in the process, showing how she still sees autistic people as puzzling and amazing and fascinating people who exist in another reality. One could count this as a good example of the exotic othering (Said, 1977) of autistic people, and yet she has found autistic ways of being an enigma for quite some time. One would have hoped however that for all her years of studying autistic people, that such an othering narrative of autistic people would have subsided in her discourse.
