We were fortunate to spend some time with Professor Uta Frith, best known for her research on autism. In this interview Uta talks about her family and how she first got involved in psychology, her early years studying, and about the time she first saw a child clinically. Her passion comes through as she discusses her fascination with autistic children, the ‘Theory of Mind’, and the development of the Sally Anne test. Uta is a long time ACAMH member and she explains how important the organisation is. We hope you enjoy the interview.
