  1. People with autism already face many challenges, including anxiety, social difficulties and in some cases epilepsy and sleep disorders. These individuals deserve the same medical treatment as all other adults. Like Raymaker says, direct involvement from the autistic community could be a significant factor in improving health care for autistic people. Hopefully these findings and efforts from the autistic and medical communities will inspire a shift in policy to accommodate people dealing with autism, Asperger’s Disorder and other conditions associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
