Study finds shortcomings in healthcare for autistic adults
December 7, 2012
Katherine McDonald, Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics associate professor and BBI faculty fellow, and other researchers with the Academic Autistic Spectrum Partnership in Research and Education (AASPIRE) have found that autistic adults report significantly worse health care experiences than their non-autistic peers.
The article, Comparison of Healthcare Experiences in Autistic and Non-Autistic Adults: A Cross-Sectional Online Survey Facilitated by an Academic-Community Partnership, is published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.
AASPIRE is an academic-community partnership where academic researchers, autistic adults, and other community members work together throughout the project. AASPIRE is based at Oregon Health and Science University and partners with community organizations including the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network and the Autism Society of Oregon, as well as academic institutions including Syracuse University, Portland State University, and University of Indiana.
