Hi,

My company does some publications on autism as part of their "Autism at Work" program and I've noticed that sometimes Autism Speaks is quoted as a source for stats for autism. I've had some success having these quotes redacted, but I realize that they will need a reliable and reputable source in the place Autism Speaks. Who can we use?

Temple Grandin comes to mind though she occasionally speaks about topics which she isn't well acquainted with.

Thanks for your help.

On a more local level, Focus Professional Services is a consulting organization based in Vancouver, Canada that attempts to hire people on the spectrum to act as IT consultants. They're a very new organization.

For those of us in Vancouver, there is an Aspies Meetup group; pm me if you're interested. I look forward to seeing anyone in Vancouver either in person or in a larger gathering!

Thank you so much! I'm surprised by the plethora of scientific sources; they do seem interesting if we need an in depth perspective. However, the easily consumable journalism sources at the bottom seem very helpful. Much appreciated.

If anyone else could vouch for and or offer more suggestions, I'd be very glad to take them.
