- Public TitlePsychoeducation for older adults with ASD
- Scientific TitlePsychoeducation for older adults with ASD
- ACRONYM
- hypothesisPsychoeducation is recommended after diagnosis. For older adults with autism there currently is no evidence based psychoeducation available. We hypothesize that participating in our psychoeducation will lead to a more comprehensive understanding of the person's autism and cognitive abilities. It is expected that the active condition (psychoeducation) has beneficial effect when compared to the waitlist control condition with treatment as usual. The beneficial effect is defined as a smaller discrepancy in reported autism symptoms and cognitive abilities between the person with autism themselves and an important other.

- Brief summaryIn this waitlist crossover trial will examine the effect of the psychoeducation "Ouder & Wijzer: psycho-educatie voor ouderen met ASS". Participants will be randomized into the Active Condition or the Waitlist (treatment as usual) Condition. The participants in the Waitlist Condition will participate in the psychoeducation after the waitlist period of 6 weeks. Older adults (55+) will be included in the study. The psychoeducation is specifically focused on aging with ASS, and was developed in collaboration with clinicians and people with ASS. Topics include, for example, cognitive aging and changes in health, living arrangements, social networks.
