Transitioning for Young Adults with Special Needs
"Transitioning to independence during young adulthood is a pivotal and challenging time for everyone. For young adults with special needs, these periods can particularly difficult. People with special needs, such as autism spectrum disorders or learning disabilities, may have social and communicative deficits which will impair their ability to advocate for themselves. Adjusting to having fewer and less structured supports is difficult and many teens and young adults are simply unprepared! "
