FEATURE PROGRAMS are a series of ongoing, continually updated, autism topics (i.e. "Key Learnings," "Beyond the Headlines", "Moving Out" or Featured Guests).
They are prepared by Autism Hangout Staff Reporters. We’ll keep on top of trends in the news as well as Autism Hangout’s Discussion Forums so you can quickly find the latest, current thinking on the topics and challenges that we face daily.
All Feature Programs have links to threads in the Discussion Forum (if you'd care to share your experience or insights with others).

"Ask Dr. Tony" - An Autism Hangout Feature Program: Answers to February & March Questions
In this continuing series, expert and author Dr. Tony Attwood fields autism-related questions submitted by Autism Hangout members.
This program addresses questions regarding Asperger's children leaving home for college, the odds of having a child with ASD, relationship issues with a spouse demonstrating Asperger's traits and childhood friendships between neurotypical and Asperger's children.
Dr. Attwood's shares his 35 year's experience with autism with concerned parents and caregivers.
In this installment, Dr. Tony talks about Gluten free Casin free diets (worth the effort?), the loss of the term Asperger's (what that means) and a few of the last questions from the "July 2010" Program.
Dr. Tony Attwood returns to answer YOUR questions about Autism. In this Program, Dr. Attwood addresses facts about common sensory issues, more on the difference between "intimate" and "special" friends (and how to tell NT's about the differences) and what Dr. T calls the "intellectual orgasm"... I'll let him explain. :)
Our own doctor of autism and encouragement is back again to answer your questions about autism.
In Part 1, Dr. T addresses issues of awareness and perception, parenting, advocacy, Abilify and age at being diagnosed.
This is Dr. Attwood with his insights, resources and indefatigable positive energy! :)
