Translating Autism: An Autism Research Blog - Check It Out
A member of the Autism Awareness Facebook group posted about this autism resource blog Translating Autism: An Autism Research Blog. It is an informational blog intended to rapidly disseminate the latest scientific findings related to the nature, causes, & treatments of autism spectrum disorders.
The host of the blog claims to be a clinical psychologist and neuroscience researcher working at a large Midwest child psychiatric institute but is not an autism specialist. His/her name is not published on the site although it is available by email. The host also indicates that he/she is not a proponent of one cause over another, one treatment over another, one philosophy over another and takes no philosophical position simply translating research findings into applicable and useful information that could help parents, teachers, clinicians, and consumers make better informed decisions.
Looks like Translating Autism could be a valuable resource for anyone with an interest in autism.
I urge everyone to check it out.
