there will be a short intermission…

… in posts about autism.

What was intended to be a brief excursion into social workers’ models of child development prompted by my happening to read about Bettelheim and Eileen Munro’s review of child protection at the same time, has turned out to be longer than expected. So in case anyone is wondering when I’m going to say anything else about autism, I’ve started a new blog about children’s services and child development called moving on from bowlby.

I want to continue exploring models of child development for a while because they are very relevant to children with disabilities in general and children with autistic and other unusual behavioural characteristics in particular. I plan to return to posting about autism as soon as possible.
