Understanding and Identifying a Dual Diagnosis
Down Syndrome & Autism, published by NDSS, draws on several national resources to assist parents and caregivers in identifying behaviors associated with ASD and determining whether or not they should seek out an evaluation. Further information and research has been published by the Kennedy Krieger Institute.
