Getting on? Growing older with autism

Paper that sets out the challenges facing people with autism in older age - as reported by them and by the people who support them. It also suggests how changes to central and local government policy can help to meet these challenges and so help all older adults with autism to lead the life they choose.

The report is based on interviews, focus groups and surveys with older people with autism and their families, as well as on the outcome of two parliamentary evidence sessions during which a panel of peers (the Commission) heard evidence from a variety of experts.
