    Kære Autisme-Aarhus

    Jeg skriver til jer, fordi min søn på 19 er autist. Han har efter en meget svær tid i folkeskolen gået 2 år på efterskole og startede for godt et år siden på HTX her i Århus. Udover min erfaring som mor til en autist er jeg i gang med en Md PhD og har selvfølgelig interessen for autisme området. Min søn klarer sig fint og jeg har nu lyst til at involvere mig i arbejdet for børn og unge med autisme.
    Kontakt mig på 22350956, hvis jeg kan være til hjælp.

    Venlig hilsen

    Anne Vestergaard

      Dear Anne (if I may),

      thank you very much for your kind message and availability. We always need subjects for behavioural studies (no neuroscience at this stage). Would it be alright to pass your number to Dr. Line Gebauer (she presented at the symposium you attended) so that she can explain what kinds of studies we are running and whether you think your son could participate in some of them.

      with kind regards
      Raffaele Rodogno (
