People 'don't understand' Asperger's


The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time theatre production has opened, based on the book by Mark Haddon.

It tells the story of a boy who appears to have Asperger's syndrome.

Author Robyn Steward, who has Asperger's, and Prof Simon Baron Cohen, director of the Autism Research Centre at Cambridge University, discuss whether it is books and plays that will change our perception of the condition and make us more accepting of it.
