Autism 101: Online Course 22
Transition to Adulthood – 1
One of the critical times comes when individuals with ASD and their families begin to look to the future. The transition from high school to continuing study or employment can be made easier through transition planning, which must be included in the child’s educational program, beginning at age 14.
With good transition planning, a student with ASD can have an opportunity to experience higher education, employment, and independent living. Parents, school officials and agency personnel work together to make the transition as smooth as possible for the student.
