Autism and ageing
15 December, 2020 @ 19:00 – 20:00
Although autistic people grow older, autistic ageing is barely recognised by society, policy makers, or by statutory services for older adults. How does invisibility impact on our lives and how can we keep ourselves well?
The talk covers:
- The impact of invisibility
- Ageing and health
- Keeping well & lockdown ideas
- Communication and social stresses
