This week I have had the very great pleasure of attending the International Meeting for Autism Research in San Sebastián / Donostia in northern Spain. Loads of things about the conference were great, not least the extraordinary venue and the beautiful city with its delicious local cuisine.

I am off tomorrow to the National Autistic Society professional conference in Harrogate – and I’m only sorry I can’t stay for the whole thing (my childcare duties call me home!).
