Autism 101: Online Course 21
Transition to Adulthood
In the next few pages we will look at some of the various challenges and opportunities facing individuals with ASD as they make the transition from the security of mandated service provided through the public school system to the uncertainty of adult services. After studying these pages you should be able to:
- Better understand what types of work and post-secondary schooling are best suited for autistic individuals
- Plan for the transition period when an autistic individual reaches the age of 21 and begins to transition from the assistance of the public school system to adult services.
