Science-based articles or commentaries in The Advocate

As a member of the Board of the Autism Society of America (1993-1998), I solicited or reviewed articles for publication in the ASA bimonthly newsletter (The Advocate) from medical authorities on a number of subjects. These articles appear in The Advocate under the heading "From the Medical Committee" or "Medical Report." It may be possible to get back issues from the Autism Society of America (1-800-3-AUTISM). Or ask that they post the articles on the ASA Web site so that they can be downloaded.
