This book aims to look into the impetus behind autistic behaviours and weave the various threads of autism into a "makes sense" theory, hard won through personal experience and decades of study. The book looks into neuroscientific research, explanations of developmental processes and clinical outcomes as to the probable causes of autism.

The Fabric of Autism shows us that compassion, understanding and intuition can co-exisit with neuroscience, as it provides a new view and appreciation of the complex neurological dysfunction labeled autism.
