Recommended readings

We are consistently asked what information people can read to learn more about ASD and in the various components in which we are active. We have therefore compiled this list of recommended readings, in three categories for those who want to learn more about ASD, links to music and education. We added a fourth section regarding ASD and employment, a component we are also keen to develop over time.

 

Our goal in compiling this list  was to keep it focussed on a few selections under each category, but are open to suggestions/additions readers might have.
