 Newcastle University, UK

What about old age?

On 29 October, Newcastle University will host a meeting of people from across the UK to discuss autism and ageing. What are the specific difficulties or issues that people with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) can face?

Topics for discussion will include:

  • identifying medical, nursing, social, housing, human rights and other age-related needs
  • the scale of demand for services across the UK
  • the role of the Department of Health and local authorities in assessing demand and costs, and of the voluntary sector in providing services.

There will also be a number of speakers, including professionals and people affected by ASD.

Find out more about the meeting and how to book your place on Newcastle University’s website www.ncl.ac.uk/iah/autism/
