During 2013, the research team consulted widely with the autism spectrum community, relatives, clinicans and researchers in lifecourse and ageing. These discussions led to a meeting on Autism Spectrum, Lifecourse and Ageing in Newcastle on 12th September 2013.
The aim of the meeting was to discuss research opportunities, and strengthen collaborations, to enable the planning of research that will make a difference to the lives of adults on the autism spectrum and their relatives.
