An Autism Update You Should Read

If you are looking for a thorough, balanced and informed autism update I recommend that you look at  Update on Autism Issues in Treatment and Comorbidity by By Bryna Siegel, PhD, Eva Ihle, MD, PhD, Elysa Marco, MD, and Robert L. Hendren, DO at UBM Medica Psychiatric Times, October 15, 2010. The authors cover a wide range of issues in the increasingly complex picture of autism disorders. Prevalence, diagnostic assessment and classification, co-morbidity and treatment issues are canvassed. With comment on such a wide range of often controversial topics there are bound to be some that you disagree with  (I found some comments questionable)  but I recommend this article as a good use of your time if you are interested in understanding what our  current view of autism looks like.
