Dana Lee Baker and Lila Walsh This chapter examines the degree to which the needs and interests of so-called low- and high-functioning individuals with autism are set in tension with one another in Canadian political discourse. The authors consider autism within disability policy before moving on to discuss the historical development of autism as a public concern.
