Lorna Wing, honorary psychiatric consultant for the National Autism Society, said the project offered "great hope" for progress in the genetic investigation of autism.She added: "Autism is likely to have multiple genes responsible, rather than a single gene.

In the UK, it was little-known until the work of Lorna Wing, a founder member of the NAS, and currently a consultant, who wrote about it in 1981.Her interest was sparked by the birth of a daughter who was diagnosed with the condition.
Since then there has been a fresh drive into learning more about AS.
But Dr Wing and others have highlighted issues of psychiatric trauma and varying degrees of depression among young adults with AS, something that seems related to their awareness of their difference from others.

Lorna Wing, Ph.D.
There is no name writ larger into the tapestry of autism, worldwide, than that of Dr. Lorna Wing. To recount all of her accomplishments would require considerably more pages than contained herein. Instead, I have chosen to reprise my two-part interview with Lorna from 2009 in which she articulates her thoughts on a wide variety of subjects of interest to the autism community.
As she expressed in those interviews, Lorna felt that her greatest contribution to the field of autism was to consider that autism is a spectrum disorder. Though expressed almost casually, that singular contribution-among so many others-is monumental. It has not only stood the test of time but also changed the way we think about and view autism.
In a career that spanned well over half a century, Lorna played many roles on the international autism stage-brilliant researcher, author, and co-founder of the National Autistic Society in England, among them. Undoubtedly, her greatest and most meaningful role-and the one that led her to autism-was that of mother to her beloved daughter, Susie, who at the age of three was diagnosed with autism. It was Susie who fueled the passion in her mother that led to a body of seminal research and rich insights that underpin what is known about autism spectrum disorder to this very day.
One of the greatest pleasures in my life was getting to know Lorna-if briefly-in the last few years of her life. My interview with her sparked a friendship across the miles, maintained by e-mail exchanges and the occasional phone call. My most enduring memory: In a remarkable turnaround, Lorna interviewed me in Manchester, England in 2010 when I was an invited speaker-at Lorna's behest I am certain-at the National Autistic Society's first-ever professional conference. I treasure that experience. More than that, I treasure the precious moments I spent with her during that conference.
There is one part, in particular, that comes so close to my own feelings about the person I came to know, that I include Dr. Gould's apt description of Lorna here:
Lorna was an exceptionally generous person. She gave freely of her ideas and expected nothing in return. Someone once described her to me as having "non-competitive excellence". Professionals' arrogance was anathema to her. She disliked jargon, fuzzy ideas and unproven treatments and interventions, and was not afraid to say so. She was, however, always incredibly sensitive to the needs of people with autism and their families.
Those words capture the essence of Dr. Lorna Wing. She has left the world a better place for her presence. She is, and will continue to be, sorely missed.
The interview by Dr. Diane Twachtman-Cullen, contains Dr. Wing's candid opinions on a variety of topics important to the autism community.
It is reprised in this issue of ASQ as a special tribute to Dr. Wing who passed away in June.
