There's lots going on at the moment. The big thing with Autism is the proposed change to diagnostic criteria. Some are saying that this will mean much fewer diagnoses of ASD, whereas others are of the view that the proposed changes will tighten up a rather wide ranging set of indicators. I've read that there is controversy over misdiagnosis with some saying that there are actually to many diagnoses of ASD under the current system. Over on our Scoop.It page there are a number of items which cover the current issues and debate surrounding diagnosis....This report in the New York Times is particularly good...

So what do you think? Have you been recently diagnosed or do you care for a family member who has? It would be great to hear your views :-)

New year....New you, with Scottish Autism

Any New Year resolutions this Hogmanay? How about getting a bit fitter and more active maybe? Or what about helping to raise awareness and money for charity?

Well Scottish Autism has some great events lined up this year to help you do just that. Over on our Facebook page, we have a list of all the UK based challenges which you can take part in this year, get fit, and raise some much-needed money for Scottish Autism at the same time.

Have a look here and pick your challenge for 2012..
