Adult Autism Spectrum Cohort

Learning about the lives of adults on the autism spectrum and their relatives

There is a lack of evidence about effective interventions and no research knowledge regarding the impact of the relationship between ageing and autism.

 This study is the first of its kind in the UK for adults with autism spectrum conditions, as part of a programme of research into ASD across the life course. Experts in ageing and life course, experienced autism researchers, and people on the autism spectrum and relatives will undertake this project. This study will involve engagement with people on the autism spectrum, their parents, siblings and partners, and meeting and discussing with them to understand much more about how living on the spectrum affects people’s daily lives as they age.
