Uta Frith

Autism: Explaining the Enigma Translated from the English by Ana Gerschenfeld. Publication date : January 1, 1992

Why do certain children live walled in by silence, cut off from the world and others? For the first time, this book offers a general theory on autism, a profound disorder in cognitive development rather than one resulting from family conflict or an attention deficit.

Uta Frith is a psychologist and member of a cognitive development study group at the Medical Research Council of Cambridge.
