      Subject: The Comic/Tragic Politics of the Autism/Asperger World - Columbia University Lecture from April 12, 2011


      Dear all:

      As many of you know, on April 12, 2011, GRASP Executive Director, Michael John Carley was the recipient of the Columbia University Center for Bioethics' 9th Anniversary Herbert G. Cohen, MD, DOS Memorial Lecture in Neuroscience. Joining past honorees/lecturers such as Oliver Saks, M.D., Carley was asked to speak on the political history of the controversies surrounding the autism/Asperger world.

      This lecture (approximately 81 minutes long) is now available for viewing on the web. You can go to http://www.grasp.org/videocolumbia.htm to both view the presentation, and download the slides used in the lecture so that you can follow along.

      Topics covered are (1) the history of the negative stigma surrounding autism and Asperger's Syndrome (AS), (2) 1993 and up: "The real arguments begin," (3) Who the players are, (4) The issues broken down: [a] The "cure" debate, [b] the vaccine debate, [c] educational and behavioral strategies, as well as aversives, [d] Conflicting messages, and [e] Research: What kind do we want?, (5) Changes forthcoming in the DSM-V, (6) Myths dispelled, (7) Context, and (8) Closing perspectives.

      From Columbia . . . "In this frank presentation, Cohen recipient Michael John Carley outlines the chronological history of the stigma surrounding words like autism and Asperger's, and then breaks down the controversies over the anticipated DSM-V, as well other sensitive issues plaguing the autism/asperger world. From a humanist vantagepoint, Carley gives an outside perspective on the debates, but also an inside perspective—as Carley is a frequent figure in these collective arguments through his positions at both GRASP and ASTEP."
