Carl H. Delacato.
The Ultimate Stranger; the autistic child (Garden City, N.Y.: Doubleday, 1974). Delacato's thesis is that autism is neuro-genic and not psycho-genic in origin. Deals almost entirely with sensory problems affecting autistic children. Topics include sensory hypersensitivity, hyposensitivity, and "white noise", by which it refers to a kind of internal interference.
