Title: Autism symptoms in adulthood following severe deprivation in childhood
My PhD project investigates the potential lingering effects of exposure to early deprivation into adulthood with a focus on autism symptoms, using data from the English-Romanian adoptees (ERA) longitudinal research study. This project is supervised by Professor Edmund Sonuga-Barke, Dr Ted Barker, and Dr Mark Kennedy.
