Welcome to Adults with Autism Spectrum DisordersEdit
Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders Wiki is a resource for adults with Autism, Asperger's Syndrome, or other Pervasive Developmental Disorders and their friends and family. Autism is typically thought of as a childhood disorder, yet there are millions of adults who may have never been diagnosed as a child or have been diagnosed and treated as a child and then grow into an adult with Autism where resources and support are extremely limited. This wiki serves as a place for these people and those close to them to seek out information and guidance for Adults living with Autism. The wiki format allows anyone to create or edit any article, so we can all work together to create a comprehensive database for adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
- Welcome to the new Wikia on Adulthood Autism and other Autism Spectrum Disorders! This Wikia has been started to provide a resource for Adults and their families living with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Isn't Autism a childhood disorder?Edit
Information about Autism has been increasing as more and more cases are being identified early in childhood. Approximately 1 in 100 children are estimated to be affected by an Autism Spectrum Disorder. What happens when a child slips through the system and is not diagnosed as a child? Also, what happens when a child with Autism grows into an adult? The result in both cases is an Adult with Autism. Information, resources, and treatment options are extremely limited for the autistic adult population. The aim of this Wikia is to bring more awareness to the public and more resources for those living with autism in adulthood.
