  • Website Transition to adult services and adulthood for young people with autistic spectrum conditions: final report

    The study focused specifically on young people with autistic spectrum conditions (ASC) on the cusp of leaving school and in the early post-school/college years. This is a period of significant change, and for that reason, presents particular challenges for young people with ASC which are over and above the challenges of transition experienced by other groups of young people. There have been concerns that young people with a diagnosis of autism but with no learning difficulties (that is, those with 'high functioning autism' (HFA) or Asperger's syndrome (AS)) whilst not eligible for support from adult social care, do have significant support needs to enable them to successfully transition into adulthood.
