Autism: Who Supports The Adults?

Children with autism grow up to be adults with autism. However, this logical assumption is not reflected in reality. Adults with autism often face many barriers, ranging from getting a diagnosis, to accessing adult-centred services, and dealing with discrimination. Dr Cheah Boon Eu and Ch’ng Bao Zhong - autistic professionals working in healthcare - join consultant developmental paediatrician Dr Rajini Sarvananthan to discuss the challenges faced by autistic adults in the domains of diagnosis, support, and stigma in the workplace.
