Autism and AS(Asperger's Syndrome) Sources
I have seen many threads on Autism and AS(Asperger's Syndrome).I think I am well qualified because 1. My mother is a Special Ed Parent Child Advocate and 2. I have Asperger's Syndrome.
Reccomended Univesities for Diagnosis:
Yale Child Study Center-
Note:Their is a 2 1/2 year waiting list for evlautations.If you would like to get evaluated by Yale,I would reccomend participating in a study.This is how I got evaluated.
University of Pittsburgh Child Study Center(Affliated with NIMH and Yale)-
Not as good of a rep as Yale,but still reccomended.
Reccomended Websites for Info:
MAAP Services for Autism
Medlineplus.gov(Search for Autism and Asperger's Syndrome)
Autism Society of America
Reccomended Books for Info:
