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!
