Older adults with ASD: The Consequences of Aging

SIG Leader: Hilde M. Geurts SIG Co-Leader: Amanda Roestorf As a follow up on next year we will focus on ASD adults over 50 years of age as ASD in older adults has been a neglected topic for years. Last year we did discuss, among other things, that there is little consistency on the types of assessment and outcome measures that should be used with older individuals. Based on what several research groups used in the past, we will have groups discussions regarding a subset of prospective measures that have the potential to be used across research project across the globe. If we use overlapping measures, data collected can be combined which will enable us to speed up the process of gaining knowledge on aging in those with ASD.
