Ageing and Autism.

I came across this interesting article doing the rounds on the internet and found it to be of some comfort. The area of ageing and Autism needs more attention. When some months ago I blogged about Autisms First Child, it got me thinking about the progression of ASD into the senior years. Given I won't be around to see my son as an old man I can only wonder about the quality of life he will have. So it pleases me to see this issue of Autism and the elderly getting some press. Lets hope some more research dollars go towards identifying the needs of older people on the spectrum, and subsequently appropriate services are put in place.
