Transition to adult services and adulthood for young people with autistic spectrum conditions

Research output: Other contribution


Many young adults with autistic spectrum conditions (ASC) fail to achieve their potential outcomes in theearly years after leaving full-time education. Access to transition support and appropriate services within theadult sector are key issues. This study explored ways in which young people with ASC (including those with high functioning autism and Asperger's syndrome) are supported over the transition period and into young adulthood. It also sought to understand and describe the experiences of young adults and their parents during this period.
