In his 2005 Presidential Address "The First Year of Life", Dr Phil Wilson discussed social development and the importance of attachment. Later in this session of the Society, we will hear Professor Christopher Gillberg describe work on autistic spectrum disorders.

Members of the Society might be interested in hearing a programme that brings these threads together. In Unconditional Love, This American Life host Ira Glass introduces two stories of parental love: the first for an adopted Romanian orphan and the second for an autistic son.
