Autism-Europe wants to improve the medicine that some autistic people use
Autism-Europe has joined a project doing research into medicine.
“Research” is when science people study something to learn more about it.
The name of the project is “Aims 2 Trials”.
This group who work on the project is learning about the medicines that some autistic people take.
The group wants to see how having autism changes the way some medicines work.
They want to understand how to make the medicines work better for autistic people.
Some autistic people take medicine to make it a bit easier to live with autism.
Other autistic people take medicine to help with other things that autistic people can also experience.
Some autistic people take medicine because they get very nervous and stressed.
Some autistic people take medicine because they can feel sad.
Some autistic people take medicine because they also have epilepsy.
Autism-Europe thinks that it is important for medicine to work well for autistic people.
Good medicine could stop autistic people from dying younger than people without autism.
The group will test how medicines work differently for autistic people.
The group will try to learn how medicines must change to work well for autistic people.
Autism-Europe will work in the group to make sure they are respecting the rights of autistic people.
Autism-Europe will also create a group of autistic people who will give advice.
They will make sure autistic people are treated fairly in the research.
Autism-Europe wants to make sure the research improves the quality of life of autistic people.
