Webinar: Aging in Autism-Risk and Resilience

In this webinar, which will take place July 24, 2024 at 12:00 PM Eastern time, Gregory L. Wallace, Ph.D., will focus on some areas of risk (for example, parkinsonism) and resilience (compensatory skills) that are being identified for autistic people as they age. He will highlight how these areas of risk and resilience might impact mental and physical health as well as quality of life for autistic people.
