Autism Speaks Transition Tool Kit
I often play the what if games about my son with autism, he is only 9 but not too many years down the road he won’t be in school and I wonder what his life will be like.
If the years immediately following an autism diagnosis aren't tough enough for a child, the next phase of their life can be even more stressful. Which is why Autism Speaks, one of the biggest autism advocacy groups is unveiling a new tool kit designed to help these teenagers and their families cope with this stage of life from 14-21. The Autism Speaks Transition Tool Kit was created to serve as a guide to assist families on the journey from adolescence to adulthood.
Parents and children can download a PDF version of the tool kit from the website. Autism Speaks also offers the option of ordering hard copies of all the tips and providing information customized to specific cities.
