Kent Heckenlively is a science teacher, an attorney, and a founding contributing editor of Age of Autism. During his undergrad years at St. Mary’s College, Kent worked for U.S. Senator Pete Wilson and in law he was the writer and editor schools law review. He is the the father of a child stricken with autism after being vaccinated—who remains unable to speak—is no stranger to controversy.He is the author of Inoculated: How Science Lost Its Should in Autism.
