Bernard Rimland, founder of the Autism Society of America and The Autism Research Institute passed away one year ago on November 21st. Dr. Rimland is the person you have to thank for putting the "refrigerator mother" theory of autism to rest.
Thank you, Dr. Rimland. And thank you to Stan Kurtz, Executive Director of the Children's Corner School and father of a recovered son for the video.
