Transitioning out of high school to either continued education or the workplace is extremely challenging for students with ASD. Even though the majority of individuals with ASD have intact cognition and language, most fail to achieve levels of independence in adulthood due to limited functional, social, communication, and adaptive skills necessary for self-sufficiency. This results in a critical need for school systems to prepare for this transition early, intensively, and comprehensively. This workshop will provide an overview of strategies, supports, and accommodations that can be implemented in schools to promote a successful transition.
