Synopsis

It is becoming increasingly clear that psychosocial outcomes for autistic adults, whether in young adulthood or middle and older adulthood, are generally poor. Nevertheless, the factors driving these poor outcomes are likely numerous and variable. Here, we examine two likely culprits, co-occurring neurological (i.e., parkinsonism during middle and older adulthood) and psychiatric (depression, anxiety, and ADHD across adulthood) conditions. We find that parkinsonism during middle and older adulthood and both depression and ADHD across adulthood appear to exert particularly strong negative impacts on quality of life outcomes in autism.
