Dr. Barry Prizant visited Google's office in Cambridge, MA to discuss his book "Uniquely Human: A Different Way of Seeing Autism".

In the book, Dr. Prizant offers a radical, but proven (over forty years) approach to helping people with autism: autistic behaviors aren’t a disease to be cured, they’re reactions based on a person’s experiences. Dr. Prizant shows parents, educators, and therapists how, once you understand why someone is reacting a certain way, you can help them feel better, master their situation, and lead a productive life. This simple, but powerful. approach has changed
thousands of lives for the better.

Barry Prizant serves as Adjunct Professor in the Artists and Scientists as Partners Group in the Department of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies at Brown. He has published more than 120 articles and chapters on autism, childhood communication disorders and child development, has given more than 700 seminars and workshops at national and international conferences. He’s served on the Editorial Board of six scholarly journals and writes a regular column for Autism Spectrum Quarterly.
