Resources for Youth with Autism Transitioning to Adulthood

April 13, 2015

On Sunday, April 12, Dateline NBC presented an hour-long special on the experiences of two young adults with autism as they turned 21 and lost their eligibility for school-based services and supports. The program vividly illustrates the challenges adolescents with autism and other developmental disabilities often face during their transition to adulthood.

ACL’s experts have pulled together a list of resources to support youth, family caregivers, educators, policymakers and the many others who play a central role in a successful adolescent transition. While some of the organizations below are funded by ACL or other federal agencies, inclusion in this list is not necessarily an endorsement of website content.
