Adult with autismA collaborative study between the Institute of Psychiatry/Maudsley Hospital and Research Autism and the National Autistic Society

This important new study is designed to explore outcome in adult life in higher ability people with autism/Asperger Syndrome

Around 15-20 years ago we conducted detailed interviews and assessments of young adults with autism and their parents, brothers and sisters. Many of these individuals are now in their 30's, 40's or beyond and we are anxious to meet with them again to find out more about the challenges and difficulties or successes they have experienced as adults. We are particularly interested in what help they and their families have had (or not!) from social, health, educational, and employment services in order to identify areas of unmet need.
