Peter Reidingdinger became quadriplegic? Wow. . . I haven't read Pegasus in Space (yet), but no worries!

Anyway, your idea about empathy being a therapy for people with autism interested me, Granath, and my non-researching self found another on just that.

Another therapy that I've heard about is service animals for people with autism.The animal helps them feel compassion for another being, and also interact with others. Interesting!
