The concept of the “intact mind” refers to the idea that inside every autistic child is a person waiting to be liberated by the right combination of support, diet, and treatment. In this comprehensive analysis of the “intact mind”, Lutz traces its history and explains how it has come to inform current policy and practice affecting those with autism.
