Autism in Adulthood

I am honoured to be named an Editorial Board member of the new scientific journal Autism in Adulthood. Autism in Adulthood is the hub for research on issues that affect adults on the autism spectrum. 1 in 68 people (CDC, 2018) are diagnosed with autism and it has become the fastest growing developmental disability being diagnosed in the U.S. (CDC, 2008 via Autism Society website). Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) is usually diagnosed in childhood however, more adults today are being diagnosed having lived a lifetime without fully understanding their uniqueness. Autism in Adulthood is proud to have autistic Editorial Board members including myself, and many autistic peer-reviewers. My commitment to scientific autism inquiry extends to my own doctoral research which centres around innovative leadership, policies, and practices that create successful pathways for autistic students in a post-secondary context. Currently I am co-authoring a literature review on Autism and the implications for higher education with Dr. Marlon Simmons of the University of Calgary.
