By popular demand…..Autism Resource List

After talking with many of you in your primary care practices it was brought to my attention that there was a desperate need for a comprehensive list of resources for you to offer your patients with autism or suspected autism.  I have heard you loud and clear and have created an Autism Resource List which includes community support resources and networks, various diagnostic clinics, various therapy resources, and helpful books.  To access this list click Resource Links and scroll down to autism, then click on “Autism Resource List.”  Please do not hesitate to email me at carrie-geurts@ouhsc.edu with any feedback or suggestions as this will likely be a fluid list that will need periodic revision.  Thanks for all your input and we certainly hope these resources will help your patients!
