Of all of knowledge and wisdom that has been in parted to me by Dr. Bryan K. Woodruff, MD (Neurologist who has a personal interest in the Autistic community), ignoring press releases in favor of reading full reports has provided me more unexpected benefits than anything else he’s taught me. So when everyone else was siting the press release issued in conjunction with this report, I went to their website to get a PDF copy of the report itself. The more I read, the more I wished everyone else in the Autism community would follow Dr. Woodruff’s advice.
I’m not only providing downloadable PDFs of the report, as well as the “fact sheet” submitted by the individual states involved in the surveillance program, but I also provide my critique of this report.
