  • Scott D. Wright (Editor) - Autism Spectrum Disorder in Mid and Later Life Bringing together a wealth of professional and academic research, alongside personal insights into aging and autism, this edited sourcebook focusses on the challenges faced by individuals who have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and are middle aged or older. Including a range of personal, academic and clinical perspectives, the book considers historical and contemporary perspectives on autism, including diagnosis, developmental outcomes and life course issues. Attention is given to medical, care and psychological issues that arise as people with ASD age, such as declining cognitive function and speech and communication issues. Family, community support, housing, advocacy, and socio-cultural considerations for older adults with ASD are also given careful consideration, and there are chapters on relationship and sexuality issues and on environmental design.

The Theory of Collective Memory and the 1953 Short Creek Arizona Polygamous Raid, Journal of Family History, Journal of Family History October 2013 vol. 38 no. 4 443-465 A key question in collective memory research is how such memories are created and shared over time. This study consisted of a qualitative content analysis of documentary artifacts to determine whether there is a collective memory of the 1953 Arizona Short Creek Raid and, if so, how it developed and contributes to an ongoing sense of identity for some Fundamentalist Mormons. The study found the 1953 Short Creek Raid is the basis for a collective memory. That memory was solidified during a “myth-making” period and is reinforced through family and community activities to perpetuate a common group identity among some present-day Fundamentalist Mormons.
