Good New Year's Resolutions for People with Asperger's and High-Functioning Autism

New Year’s resolutions are the perfect opportunity for all those who have failed to start making the changes that they said they would make next week or next month. Now is your chance to sit down and prepare a list of important lifestyle changes you want to make.
