2 thoughts on “Memories of Michael: There was Hope Back Then (~1958)

  1. What?

    This is the only one tagged “Hope”?

    [had hoped to find some others – because you had explored that theme a lot].

    Maybe better to search through the category.

    [or “Autism Sibling” or “Memories”].

    Leon Eisenberg too had hope for autistic adolescents. His paper was written a few years before – 1956.

    May have percolated to the families. And the siblings!


    • Seeing how my brother’s life turned out, there was a time when hope ran out, at least for me. But my father never stopped hoping that Mike would “get better” and at least be able to communicate with us.

      Thanks for commenting, Adelaide.
