Despite the recent upsurge in the disorder -- and related disorders -- there remains a lot of ignorance about the subject. UAlbany's Kristin Christodulu, director of the Center for Autism and Related Disabilities, offers insight into research, education, and training on topics associated with autism spectrum disorders, sleep disturbances, challenging behavior, parenting, and inclusion.
