Forthcoming changes to the Autism Centre blog

The Autism Centre blog will morph shortly into the blog for the Sheffield Hallam Autism Research Partnership (SHARP). This is a new cross Sheffield Hallam University initiative designed to bring those with an interest in autism research together, both from within and external to the university. Rather than to overwhelm followers with yet another blog we felt it advisable to merge Autism Centre activity into the new blog. If you would like to follow the new blog then you do not need to take any action as you will remain subscribed. You can of course unsubscribe at any time.
