The seventh annual World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD) is April 2, 2014. The goal of WAAD is to raise awareness of an “invisible” disability, and thankfully, awareness of Autism and related disorders has increased dramatically over the last 25 years.
To celebrate World Autism Awareness Day, Wiley published a virtual issue containing some of the most popular original articles and reviews from Autism Research. Published for the International Society for Autism Research (INSAR), Autism Research is the highest ranking journal devoted to research on Autism Spectrum Disorders, with an impact factor of 3.988.
The breadth and quality of the articles in this virtual issue highlights the vitality of the field. Below are some articles from the free issue of Autism Research. To browse the full list of articles, click here.
