Laura Grahm Holmes, PhD
Center for Autism Research Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
Presented by The A.J. Drexel Autism Institute
How do adults on the spectrum navigate the complexities of sexual and romantic relationships? If desired, what do people need to achieve fulfilling relationships, and how does difficulty in this domain affect health and well-being? Dr. Holmes will discuss current trends in research on sexuality and relationships for individuals on the autism spectrum and her ongoing research with men and women on the spectrum and their families.
