Beyond Guilt or Innocence
by Dennis Debbaudt, Investigator and Journalist.
Debbaudt is a freelance reporter with experience writing
for the Detroit News. After his son was diagnosed with
an autism spectrum disorder, he became interested in
the problems faced by people on the spectrum in the
legal system (especially because of perceptual problems),
and on improving the awareness among law enforcement
officers of the issues that arise. He has written several
books on this topic, and in conjunction with police
departments has developed teaching curriculums.

Syndrome, has written this essay which applies
to AS or High Functioning Autism. It covers the whys,
when, and hows of explaining the diagnosis with emphasis
on the strengths of the individual.
