Issue 26: Winter 2015


Our co-editor Debby has twins on the spectrum, but this is the first time that we’ve shared readers experiences of having twins on the spectrum, with four very different personal stories. We reach the end of our popular ‘conversation rivers’ series with some handy tips on fine tuning conversation skills for those who have developed them. There’s our annual conference and exhibitions guide, plus an in-depth look at visual distortion in autism and tips on how to combat its effects.
