“the sense of a professional discipline embracing a scientific methodology, a shared vocabulary, and an agreed-upon body of findings rooted in research and practice. In that regard, Kanner’s generation was among the pioneers.”
John Donvan, In a Different Key: The Story of Autism

“In 1998, an autistic woman known as Muskie had some fun with this when she set up a mock website for a fake organization she called the Institute for the Study of the Neurologically Typical. Muskie had her ISNT “experts” present the facts behind the disorder she referred to as “Neurotypical Syndrome.” WHAT IS NT? Neurotypical Syndrome is a neurobiological disorder characterized by preoccupation with social concerns, delusions of superiority, and obsession with conformity. HOW COMMON IS IT? Tragically, as many as 9625 out of every 10,000 individuals may be neurotypical. ARE THERE ANY TREATMENTS FOR NT? There is no known cure for neurotypical syndrome.”
