“There are several websites where you can find this information. Most of these allow users to freely print and distribute the information without restriction to copyright.
The site I am sending you to is called Medline Plus, run by the National Institute of Health (a government program). As you scroll down this page you will see many different articles on autism including basic overviews and specific information on diagnosis and treatment.
All of these topics have both English and Spanish texts available. The link to the Spanish version text is clearly marked. I suggest reading the english version first to make sure that the article contains the information you are looking for.
You have three options for printing these articles:
1) You can highlight the text using your mouse, then right-click on the highlighted text and select Print from the pop-up menu and chose to print the Selection only.
2) Another option is to copy and paste the entire article into a word processor (such as a Microsoft Word document) so that you will have it for future use. This method allows you to make adjustments to the text (like margins and paper size) and you save it to your hard drive.
3) You can use your browser’s toolbar to select File and then Print. The disadvantage to this method is that it will probably print the side content of the page which you do not need and this means that the actually wording of the article might not fit onto a normal sheet of paper. I recommend using option 1 or 2 instead of this method.
Here is the site:
There are also many good books published in both Spanish and English. You can do a Google or Yahoo search for these or go to a site like Amazon.
Good luck on your search, I hope this helps you find what you need!
