What's news

A little newspaper reading for your Thursday morning: The New York Times has a story about Pete Wright of Wrightslaw and his work on behalf of learning disabled students. ... The Bergen Record has a feature on an autistic pianist who recently performed at Carnegie Hall. ... Yahoo News reports on a new "National ADHD Education Campaign." ... And if you're looking for something a little longer to read, here's the San Francisco Chronicle's review of what may be the only novel I go near this summer (so devoted to nonfiction have I become): The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, a mystery narrated by a 15-year-old autistic detective. Slate has a round-up of the book's generally good reviews, if you're looking for more opinions.
