Defining Positive Life Outcomes as an Autistic Adult


Research in autism often has a negative outlook, focusing on barriers or challenges faced. Currently, there is little understanding to how autistic individuals define a positive life outcome; instead, definitions rely on parent or teacher reports. Our research aims to explore positive life trajectories or outcomes as defined by autistic individuals themselves.
