He says he likes to be called a 'cultural intrepreter' and speaks of 'sensory violations'. All in the context of autism. Meet Stephen Shore, presenter, teacher, autism author and... he has autism. Says he was classified as a little kid as 'psychotic' later moved up to 'neurotic'. Stephen has a tongue-in-cheek way of explaining these things and is always interesting. I caught up with him after last seeing him several years ago. We spoke about the Judge Rotenberg Educational Center in Massachusetts which is getting the attention of the United Nations for their aversive electric shock treatment of autism and special-needs students. An interesting back and forth conversation. (38 minutes)
