The Childhood Autism Rating Scale is a behavior rating scale intended to help diagnose autism. CARS was developed by Eric Schopler, Robert J. Reichier, and Barbara Rochen Renner.

These are not your run-of-the-mill 400tk RC cars available at Babul Brothers Departmental Store. Like a 1:1 car, you.

The original concept for the Aska was a similar roadable eVTOL aircraft design in a three-seat retro...
