Top 5 Blog Posts for 2012
As my year as your peds blogger comes to a close, I thought I would give you a rundown of the top 5 most popular posts.
5. Weighing in at the fifth spot was the final update on the DSM-5 due out next May: SPD Excluded from DSM-5.
4. The AJOT published study on Speed and Legibility with Pencil Grasp had some surprising results.
3. The video clip on What Autism Feels Like is a great soundtrack for what a day in the life of a child with ASD actually sounds like. Watch it here.
2. In our techno world we live in these days, I had to ask: Is Smart Technology Changing Developmental Milestones?
1. And the most generated number of reads was my recent post on Autism Speaks Out about Newtown Tragedy. I hope this helps shed light about what autism is and more importantly is not, as well draw focus on the need to have a serious discussion/resolution in how mental health issues are addressed in our country today. Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to the children, their families, and the communities that were impacted by this event.
As 2012 exits, I wanted to say thank you for taking the time in your busy days to read A Pediatric Perspective. I wish you a happy, prosperous and healthy New Year!
