The final presentation will focus on early  predictors of adult outcome; the implications of findings from studies of older adults  for existing adult services, and the impact on elderly parent carers. The results of  a 40 year longitudinal study of 60 individuals with ASD (all of whom were of normal non-verbal IQ as children and now aged up to 65 years) will be discussed in the light of other recent long-term follow-up studies.
