    How to diagnose Autism when the internet and other resources aren’t available?

    I want to present a scenario to you, imagine something apocalyptic happens, a nuclear war breaks out, a super-volcano or two go off, or cats & dogs start living together. Your community is reduced to a primitive survivalist state and it turns out that it’ll be quite some time before...
