    I have just completed the Open University short course: 'Understanding the autism spectrum', and I have read your opinion with great interest, especially as Dr Wendy Lawson features within the course material.

    I wholeheartedly agree with your comments regarding the need for an improved autism research agenda for research into adults, and as such I hope to be able to contribute, through assisting with this research in the near future.
