Improving health and wellbeing for autistic adults

This is an ongoing program of research with the long term aims to:

(a) To identify autism specific variables, with respect to the health concerns of autistic adults and their health care providers

(b) To compare the data on these variables with a matched control group, in order to discriminate the unique autistic profile from the profile of the general population

(c) To develop an integrated and interactive suite of interventions ‘AWell’ using validated strategies, targeting identified health issues in middle aged/older autistic adults

(d) To implement and evaluate the ‘AWell’ trialling it with healthcare providers
