Subjective and Objective Cognitive Decline across Adulthood for Autistic People
Abstract: Research on the impact of ageing for autistic people is scarce. It is crucial to understand how ageing may impact autistic people due to both the increasing awareness of middle-age and later life for autistic people and the known changes that occur with ageing generally. Changes in cognitive abilities in particular are important as decline in cognition is associated with reduced independence and increased risk of dementia. In this seminar the speakers will present data on subjective and objective measures of cognitive abilities among autistic adults. They will discuss similarities and differences between findings, and comment on what these results mean for future research.
