This week’s news includes several overviews of recently released studies, an eye-opening piece about how autism is approached and treated in different areas of the world, and a valuable resource from U.S. News & World Report that can aid families with adolescents on the spectrum as they begin the college admissions process and transition to adulthood. Again, we will try to link to scientific articles if available.
