Ageing and Autism

Ageing is the process of becoming older, a process that is genetically determined and environmentally modulated.

However, as Cos Michael has said in an editorial in the journal, Autism.

"We know virtually nothing about what happens to us, autistic people, physically, cognitively, emotionally and socially as we pass through middle and older age."

She goes on to say that research is necessary both to inform and equip those who provide support to older autistic people (2016).
