Peter Bell of Autism Speaks talks about autism and his son
As readers of this blog know, I spent the latter half of last week at the IMFAR autism science conference. For the first time, my son Cubby accompanied me. He helped my friend Alex Plank, founder of the Wrong Planet website, to interview a number of people.
In this video Peter Bell talks about his son and his views on finding ways to help people who are truly disabled by autism, and want help, while recognizing that some on the spectrum just wish to be left alone.
In the image below, Peter's son Tyler and Alex check out a robot. The female on the right is Heather Knight of Aldebaran Robotics of Paris, France. I did not record the robot's name.
I'm really proud of the work Alex and my son did recording video interviews. Check it out and let me know what you think. In the next week Alex will be editing and uploading several more interviews.
