Dr. Peter Vermeulen is a Flemish pedagogue and an international authority on autism.

Peter wrote his first book in 1996 and many more followed. They all share the same style: Peter explains science based facts about autism in a very comprehensible language, coupled with practical tips and always topped with a touch of humour. Science with a wink and a link to the real contexts of everyday life. He takes part in internationally organized workshops and lectures on autism and is often asked as a speaker in Belgium, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, the United Kingdom and Canada.
