Last night was the 8th annual Upstate Diversity Leadership Awards Dinner. The key note speaker was Lorri Shealy Unumb who spoke about autism and the passing of SC's Ryan's Law named after her son. What does this have to do with this blog? Well a few things. Even though I took notes, I knew that once I got to the library, I would have a plethora of resources to look up the information she presented. Ms. Unumb spoke about the Autistic spectrum disorders, treatment and the cost of treatment. The Gale Health and Wellness Resource Center has a number of articles and videos that will help you understand this disorder. See the video Recognizing the Signs of Autism. For more information on disorders, see our Health and Medicine subject page. We have specific professional resources and consumer resources.
