Current research into adults with AS/HFA?

Now that people in their 40s, 50s, 60s (and upwards) are requesting diagnosis I wonder if there is any research in progress  to discover how being on the spectrum during  the years before autism/AS was 'discovered' affected their lives and whether looking at the way they (at least outwardly) coped in the NT world would add a dimension to the treatment (and understanding) of those with the syndrome.
