Bernard Rimland - Nonfiction

Autism Books

Bernard Rimland wrote the influential 1964 book Infantile Autism which did much to convince people that autism was caused by physical anomalies in the brain rather than by the way parents treat their children. Bernard Rimland founded the Autism Research Institute which, among other things, publishes a newsletter summarizing autism research. Bernard Rimland is the father of an autistic son who is an artist.
