Ever wondered what is the difference between Aspergers and
autism but been too embarrassed to ask. There are many myths and
misunderstandings about people with autism. EdSkeptics' very own
Heather Pentler is here to fill your knowledge holes. Heather's
talk seeks to dispel some of the myths and expose some of the awful
practices and "cures" that are on offer.
Heather has been an active skeptic for the last 7 years and is currently on the committee of Edinburgh Skeptics. She has previously spoken about her experiences exposing dodgy alternative medical practices. Heather's day job is a support worker working with autistic adults for a charity.
