This page comprises my current "top picks" for information/reference of the subjects contained within the ASD as a Culture Wiki.

At the top of my list is a site that matches my philosophy of picking out treatments for my own disorder (and other things). I always look towards science and am very picky about using peer-reviewed unbiased research. This site does much of the work for me in that regard:
