New Posts Questions for Dr. Attwood RSS Feed

Dr. Tony Attwood will be reviewing questions posted here and address 4-5 of them during his monthly "Ask Dr. Tony" SKYPE interview with Craig Evans. He'd like to tackle common (widely found) issues affecting folks with autism that are generally not covered in his texts. You've got nothing to lose and possible insights to gain. Ask away! But PLEASE make your questions SHORT and CLEAR. If your explanations and commentary are too long, we won't be able to include them!!
