Who was Hans Asperger?
When researching for her novel she found out: He was a eugenicist and worked with the Nazis experimenting and sending these autistic children to their death. He was a Monster. That's why she will not call her syndrome that name, she calls her syndrome AURA. She never liked that
name Asperger's when first hearing the doctor saying those words; felt it was eerie being so sensitive picking up vibes and Now She Knows Why. She learned all that she could about high functioning autism, and thank goodness she went down the drug free path. There are always two roads you can take, it's up to the person which one they chose to go down. Everyone has to do what they feel is best for them. That's why she doesn't want the government in her business telling her what she should and shouldn't do. She was very protective towards her child like her mother was with her. That's why it's so important to be there for your children and she used to Watch Touched By An Angel with her son.
Hans Asperger's before the Second World War
Ran a school for autistic children and seen as a hero
The Austrian Johann "Hans" Friedrich Karl Asperger was an Austrian paediatrician, eugenicist, medical theorist, and medical professor after whom Asperger syndrome is named. He is best known for his early studies on mental disorders, specifically in children. Hans Asperger has long been recognized as a pioneer in the study of autism. He was even seen as a hero, saving children with the condition from the Nazi killing program by emphasizing their intelligence. However, it is now indisputable that Asperger collaborated in the murder of children with disabilities under the Third Reich. I'm sure it was to save his life, they would terrorize citizens to obey their corrupt and evil ways.
Edith Sheffer: "Asperger's Children:
The Origins of Autism in Nazi Vienna"
Prize-winning author Edith Sheffer presents her ground-breaking research on Asperger Syndrome with Google's Eileen Naughton. Sheffer exposes how Hans Asperger, widely seen as a compassionate pioneer of autism and Asperger syndrome in Nazi Vienna, actually participated in the Third Reich's murder of disabled children considered "unworthy of life" and crafted his definition of autism around Nazi ideology and institutions.
Progress in Understanding
She can understand where Tony Attwood is coming from learning about the school Han's Asperger's, an Austrian psychiatrist, was running before the Second World War in Austria 1944. It sounded wonderful what he was doing for these children. Believes these theories: Genes, brain changes, and environment can increase the chance of developing Asperger's child. Yes definitely, this happened to her.
Then the Nazis moved in you have to listen to Silberman podcast. Han's mostly likely to save his own life had to go along with these terrible atrocities and perhaps he did save some of their lives because he did do some amazing things with autistic children. It was not before 1994 that Asperger Syndrome (AS) was included in the fourth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual.
