We have discussed merging proposals into CogSci before, such as the Neuroinformatics proposal, but with not much success. As I was browsing Area 51 I noticed the Autism proposal. Many of their sample questions would be perfectly on-topic here:
How is an autistic person's brain different from a non-autistic one?
At what age are autism disorders detectable with a reasonable level of certainty?
Are there any medications that mitigate the effects of autism?
And some are maybe on topic:
Can autism be inherited?
What are the best/recommended techniques to teach language to autistic children?
Are autistic children as happy as normal children?
Of course, some are about self-help, social and parenting factors and would be off-topic:
As an aspie who has trouble dating, it's been suggested that I should work to ask more emotional questions on dates. How can I develop this skill?
Should I tell my boss that I'm autistic?
Are there any scholarships for children who have autism?
Should we reach out to this proposal? If so, how?
