Undiagnosed Unease: Tim Page and Asperger's Syndrome

With the announcement this week that the American Psychiatric Association is redefining Asperger's Syndrome as a form of autism, we'll reprise our conversation with Pultizer Prize winner Tim Page about growing up with undiagnosed Asperger's. Page spent his childhood obsessed with silent films and early opera recordings. He spent most of his teenage years on drugs and on the verge of flunking out of school. All the while, he was unable to fit in and somewhat desperate about it. In 2000 he discovered the source of his lifelong unease was Asperger's. He tells the story in his new memoir Parallel Play: Growing Up With Undiagnosed Asperger's. Join us Friday morning at 9 for an encore presentation of The Sound of Ideas.

Guests
