Ageing with autism
Ageing with autism: a guide for clinicians and health professionals
This ebook is an at-a-glance guide to some of the main issues faced by older people with autism, and how you can best support those in your care. It looks at the range of topics including the effects of ageing; the challenges of assessing ageing-related conditions in adults with autism; communicating with people on the spectrum; and managing appointments, check-ups and emergency admissions to hospital. The book is aimed at professionals such as GPs, nurses and hospital staff who do not support adults with autism every day, but may come into regular contact with them.
