I had the chance to be a guest at Parent.com on the regular parenting blog of Dr. Richard Rende. From his bio: “Richard Rende, Ph.D., is an Associate (Research) Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at Brown University and Director of the Transdisciplinary Research Group at Butler Hospital in Providence, RI. He received a BA in Psychology from Yale University, an MA degree in Psychology from Wesleyan University, a PhD in Human Development and Family Studies from Penn State University, and completed post-doctoral training in Clinical and Genetic Epidemiology at Columbia University.”

When New York Times published their article about the possible impact of the proposed changes to the Aspergers, Autism and PDD NOS diagnoses, he reached out to me to give my opinion about the changes. I was honored to do it, and really enjoyed the process, including my talks with Richard, who is a genuinely nice guy. Click on the Parent.com logo above, and it will take you right to the article.
