What Does Healthy Aging Look Like for Autistic Adults? – December CARE Connections

As autistic people reach older adulthood, how can healthcare providers ensure they receive appropriate and effective care? Read the December issue of CARE Connections, the monthly newsletter of the School of Nursing’s Center for Aging Research and Education.

Here’s an excerpt:

“We don’t know much, really, about what happens to autistic adults in midlife and beyond,” says Lauren Bishop-Fitzpatrick, MSW, PhD, an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Social Work and investigator at the Waisman Center.

This month’s CARE Connections also includes a profile of SoN Clinical Assistant Professor Sarah Endicott and news and events relevant to older adult health.

Sign up to receive future issues by email on the CARE website.
