Abstract

Purpose:

This commentary discusses the implications of undertaking quality of life research in the field of autism.

Findings:

This commentary suggests that existing definitions of quality of life, founded on principles of normalisation, may not be completely applicable to autistic people, and that new ways of both defining and measuring quality of life might be needed
