Welcome to Issue 20

There have been a lot of changes here at The Autism File. I have given up my job as a Drama Teacher to work full time with The Autism File and to carry on my research into our autistic children’s future.

The magazine will now start to report from as many conferences as we can get to. Jon and I are going to The Cambridge Autism Research Conference in September (check Dates for Diaries for more info).

Jon will be going to Seattle in late September for the DAN Conference. All the latest news from these conferences will be written up in the next issue. You will have Issue 21 through your doors by the end of October. Ann and I are going to the World Autism Congress in South Africa (check inside back page for details) in October/November - we will bring you back a full report for Issue 22 which will be through your doors by Christmas!

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any autism news/events/queries and I will do my best to print and get help where needed.

Have a fantastic summer!
