Project ID683
DescriptionComparison of cognitive profiles of individuals over the age of 50 with and without ASD. Although a lot of research has been done with younger people with autism, very little research has looked at older people with and without autism. Developing a better understanding of the memory and cognitive abilities of older adults with ASD will aid understanding of potential cognitive decline in this group and tailoring of psychosocial and support interventions for them.
