In a recent issue of HELEN: Journal of Human Exceptionality, an article explores the challenges that many neuroatypical adults face when being assessed for possible dementia.

The article can be found at Dementia and neuroatypical adults: Can they get a fair assessment? — Helen: The Journal of Human Exceptionality (helenjournal.org)
