Einstein, Beethoven, Mozart, Van Gogh: all displayed symptoms of Aspergers syndrome. But not every person with Aspergers is a genius.
This program follows a self-described eccentric who, after discovering he matches up with the general Aspergers profile, sets out on a quest to learn all he can about the disorder – and whether he truly does have it.
Along the way, he speaks with author Michael Fitzgerald, Professor Temple Grandin, Professor Alan Snyder, Wired magazines Steve Silberman, Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, and a number of children and adults with Asperger’s Syndrome about topics ranging from Aspergers traits, to possible causes of the condition, to Geek Syndrome and the AQ Test.
A warm and understanding look into the very different world of autism spectrum disorders.
