Young autistics and their parents have high hopes for adulthood.

It helps to have a road map for the journey ahead.
Here are some tips and resources I’ve found to prepare for the journey.
In the United States, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act mandates public education for children ages 3-21. One of the goals in that act is to prepare students for employment and independent living.
As young people complete junior high and high school, this plan has goals for independent living and employment which are outcome oriented; based on students’ strengths and areas of need; and focused on instruction, services, or education that help the young person gain employment and living skills.
Autism After 16 is [a site] dedicated to providing information and analysis of adult autism issues, with the emphasis on analysis. Anyone can Google “autism + adults" and discover a vast array of programs, documents, and products. Our intention here is to try to help adults with ASD and their families make sense of what’s out there. Our big focus out of the gate will be Transition issues, since so many of you are struggling with Transition right now.
