Autistic Adults and other Stakeholders Engage Together

Saturday, November 10, 2018 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Location: Renaissance West

Session Description

This is the AASET Project's Year 2 Meeting. Autistic adults have multiple, chronic, and potentially preventable healthcare needs as compared to same-aged adults without ASD, but we know very little about why these differences are occurring and how to improve outcomes. Our team will prioritize the specific positive health and healthcare outcomes desired by autistic adults, identify potential evidence-based interventions from the perspective of autistic adults, and will involve other stakeholders in identifying interventions to address priority topics.

We envision a world in which autistic adults have access to appropriate healthcare to support positive health outcomes.
