Podcast: “Emergent and Transactional” with Dr. Andrew Whitehouse
This week’s ASF podcast returns with a special guest: Dr. Andrew Whitehouse from the University of Western Australia talks about a new unifying theory of the spectrum of autism symptoms and features. It’s called “emergent and transactional”, and while the original author was Dr. Jonathan Green from the UK, Dr. Whitehouse wrote a clear explanation of what it means. He also provides his perspective on the broad spectrum of experiences, feelings and priorities in the autism community and how this new theory might bring together at least some of the views. We also discuss how courage and humility are needed by the entire community to reduce the vitriol.
