A quick blog post today as in ten minutes I’m off for Christmas – and I hope you will all be having a well-deserved rest at this time of year too!
A quick blog this week, just to link to this excellent, short interview with Richard Mills. He is Director of Research at the National Autistic Society and is a fantastic supporter of academics working in an effort to benefit the autism community.
