Remembering Leo Kanner 30 years on

This is a short post to remember the passing of a man who influenced countless people.

Emeritus Professor of Child Psychiatry, Leo Kanner passed away on 3 April 1981. Thirty years after his death, his name lives on, and his important work still resounds world-wide.

During this years World Autism Awareness Day (2 April), spare a thought for Kanner and perhaps take a little time out to read his original paper. Rest in peace.
