The Association between Therapeutic Interventions and Quality of Life in People with Autism

Summary: 
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the association between therapeutic interventions and quality of life (QoL) and mental health in people with autism aged 18 years and older without intellectual disability (ID). Results from this study will help identify interventions which are most impactful and contribute to a better QoL and mental health in people with autism and will guide prioritization of those interventions which matter most from the perspective of autistic individuals and their caregivers.
