Interview with Dr. Fred Volkmar

On the May 5, 2004 Fresh Air, Terry interviewed Dr. Fred Volkmar from Yale Child Study Center. As the parent of an autistic teenager (age 13) there was a lot I had already heard or figured out for myself, but there was quite a bit of good new info as well.

Terry also spoke with Michael John Carley, who was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome as an adult, not long after his son was diagnosed. I have to admit that when Zeke was first diagnosed and I learned more about the syndrome, one of my first thoughts was, “Boy, I didn’t miss it by much. A lot of these things describe me.” Good stuff. (BTW, Carley is the executive director of GRASP [Global and Regional Asperger Syndrome Partnership].
