Charting the Course of Autism in Adulthood

Many adults on the autism spectrum face difficulties in employment, postsecondary education, and community participation. Challenges do not end once these activities have started -  maintaining these activities over time can be just as difficult as getting them in the first place. Yet, almost nothing is known about the factors that promote stability in employment, postsecondary employment or community participation. The goal of this study is to examine the factors, services, and supports that facilitate stability, so that we can inform policies and future interventions to better the lives of adults on the autism spectrum.
