Transition from secondary school to life is one of the most stressful times in the lives of young adults, but for individuals with autism, the event is overwhelming and anxiety provoking. Since many lack the skills and confidence to enter into post-secondary education or the workplace they often graduate from the school system to their parents’ basements. The intent of this program is to respond to the increasing needs of young adults with ASD who require specific preparation programs and direct support to ensure a successful transition experience to the world of enhanced education, employment and independence.

"While more than 93,000 adults in Ontario are affected by the challenges of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), many go undiagnosed for far too long. Without appropriate diagnostic and mental health services, many of these adults suffer in isolation. To address this emerging issue, care providers from across Ontario have joined together to create the Ontario Working Group on Mental Health and Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder." Read the news release.

The group, which includes Autism Ontario, CAMH and many more, is hosting a one day conference that will be of interest to psychiatrists, family doctors and mental health clinicians, and will run adjacent to Geneva Centre for Autism’s International Symposium, Autism 2014.
