New Study for Adults With Autism

People hear about children with Autism, but we seem to forget that it never goes away and adults live with Autism, too. University of Notre Dame Professor John Duffy' is writing a book about history of autism and wishes to "include the voices, experiences, and perspectives of adult men and women with autism and Asperger’s Syndrome." According to Dr. Duffy's faculty profile, his academic specialty is "historical development of literacy and rhetoric in cross-cultural contexts" with a special interest in Autism as he has an autistic son. If you would like your voice to heard, and you were born between 1945 and 1995, please contact Dr. Duffy.

Adults With Autism

Children with autism are often in the news, but rarely do we hear about adults with autism. The disorder does not magically disappear at the age of 21, so what happens when these children grow up?

Are you or someone in your family on the Spectrum? Do you have any advice for others who are effected by Autism? Do you know of a program that should be added?

Please share.

      Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) often can be reliably detected by age 3. In some cases even earlier than that. Recent studies suggest that kids may eventually be accurately diagnosed by the age of 1 year or even younger. One thing for certain is that if your child shows any of the early warning signs of autism then they should be evaluated by a professional who specializes in autism disorders.

      Wonderful lens and up-to-date information for those with loved ones with autism. With the budgets of cities and states being depleted as they are, some of these programs may suffer. I hope they do not, but they are already being cut back in Vegas. Thanks for sharing such valuable information.

      Great resource! Both of my children are special needs and their doctor thinks my little guy may be slightly autistic. It is hard to find resources. It is great that you made this list.
