Towards a better quality of life: The rights of ageing people with autism

The ageing population is a phenomenon that is challenging policy makers around the world. In Europe, the percentage of the population aged 65 years or over is expected to increase from 18 percent in 2010 to 30 percent by 2060. With around 1 in 150 people currently being diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, this means there is a large – and growing – number of ageing adults with autism whose needs have not yet been considered in most countries. This new report by Autism-Europe addresses the key challenges faced by ageing people with autism and their families, in the context of their rights and emerging best practices in the field from around Europe.
