Quality of life for autistic adults subject of new study

In the 1980s, 400 Utah children diagnosed with autism became the subject of long-term study.

They have contributed greatly to researchers’ understanding of the disorder’s prevalence and characteristics. Just last year, a study showed a surprising number grew up to have fulfilling lives as adults with jobs, meaningful relationships.

Now researchers want to know the “whys” behind the good and less than favorable outcomes, which will entail tracking down as many of the original 400 as possible.
