Autism Spectrum Disorder in NF1

NF Midwest is excited to add another new piece to our be iNFormed series. This is a series of material and articles written on various subjects of interest to the NF community in easy to read formats. The articles may be on specific complications or about other areas of interest such as neuropsychological testing, optic gliomas, or information for teachers.
