Directed by assistant professor of social work Dr. Lauren Bishop, the Waisman Center’s Aging and Health Equity in Autism and Developmental Disabilities (AHEADD) Team uses a combination of linked administrative data and prospectively collected data to characterize disparities in and develop strategies to improve health and wellbeing in partnership with autistic adults and adults with other developmental disabilities. The overall goal of projects in the lab is to develop strategies that will help adults with developmental disabilities live long, healthy, and self-determined lives in their communities.
