Transition to Adulthood
Transitioning to adulthood is a process requiring advanced planning and preparation. Some of the services and supports a child under 18 has will come to an end and new adult services may begin. Parents may need to develop new expectations, activities, supports and services for a growing adult. The person with ASD will need support to identify their interests, strengths and their next steps.
Questions for the person with Autism:
- What do I want to do after high school?
- What am I great at?
- Where will I live?
Successful transitions require early planning and practice, practice, practice!
