Back to Add Disability History to Curriculum

Disability History Awareness Day 30! Did you know:

In 1943 Dr. Leo Kanner of John Hopkins University introduced the classification of Autism. He was published in a paper called The Nervous Child using the term "early infantile autism" and the characteristics he described are still included in the autism spectrum of disorder.
