In ‘We’re Not Broken,’ Author Eric Garcia Takes On Myths About Autism

Whether you know it or not, you know somebody who is autistic.

So if you think autism doesn’t affect you, you’re wrong, says Eric Garcia, a senior Washington correspondent for The Independent. Garcia is the author of the book We’re Not Broken: Changing the Autism Conversation. The book was written partly out of frustration — frustration over the media’s coverage of autism, frustration over the myth surrounding autism, and the policies that have been shaped by society’s misconceptions.
