Trent University Research Report 2018

  1. All members of AHBD, regardless of member duration, experienced a positive impact as a result of their membership.
    – Caregivers report experiencing a non-judgmental and supportive environment, reduced isolation, development of supportive relationships, and opportunities to engage in activities with a community.
    – The adults with autism experienced an enhanced quality of life, enhanced mental health (e.g., less anxiety) and physical health (e.g., weight loss), reduced isolation, and the development of supportive relationships.

  2. As a whole, AHBD addressed concerns that caregivers have for their future and the future of their adult son or daughter with autism. However, members who have been involved with AHBD
    long-term reported that more of their concerns for the future had been addressed and greater faith in AHBD’s ability to address these concerns, compared to short-term members.

  3. Regardless of duration of membership with AHBD, members report levels of social provisions that are moderate to high.

  4. Levels of social provisions increase as a result of joining AHBD and these increases appear to occur after a relatively short period of time with the organization (between 1 and 12 months).
