Abstract

In the United Kingdom it is estimated that 700, 000 people have a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. This is equal to 1.04% of the population. It is estimated that 15 million people in England have a long-term health condition. Recent findings suggest that comorbidity of long term health conditions may be greater in adults with autism than in other populations, these include deafness or partial hearing loss, blindness or partial sight loss, intellectual disabilities, mental health conditions, and physical disabilities. The aim of the review is to investigate the prevalence of these conditions and how they affect the population in terms of health care, treatment and diagnosis.
