Autism Cymru commissions Bangor University to explore lives of people with autism over the age of 40|
CARDIFF, Wales: In recognition of the need to develop services appropriate for adults who have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), the Welsh Assembly Government is supporting research to explore people's current and future needs.
Autism Cymru - Wales' National Charity for Autism - has commissioned Bangor University to explore the lives and needs of people with ASD above the age of 40 better to understand the challenges faced and what services people would like to have access to in the near future.
If you are over 40 and have a diagnosis of ASD (e.g., Kanner's autism, childhood autism, atypical autism, pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwise specified, Asperger's syndrome or high-functioning autism), we would love to hear from you!
We would like to speak with you (for about half an hour) about your daily life and activities, the support you receive now or would like to see in the future.
Please contact Vaso Totsika (email@example.com
phone: 01248 388706 for more information on the study, or to arrange for a chat (over the phone or in person).
All information will be strictly confidential and anonymous.
