NICE guidelines on autism diagnosis published

A very quick post on the news carried by several sites that the National Institute for Health & Clinical Excellence (NICE) have published the first of three streams on the topic of autism spectrum conditions. The National Autistic Society (NAS) carry the news (here) but the full guidance on pathways to diagnosis in the UK can be downloaded here.

At the moment I haven't read the full document so will probably post again on this subject. There are two remaining strands of guidance currently still under development as discussed in a previous post earlier this year.
