Research shows that each year, 70,700 to 111,600 young adults affected by autism age out of school-based services with little to no transition services in place.
There is a huge need for families and communities to find a way to bridge the gap of services offered for young adults.
With the internet at our fingertips, there's no reason why families should go without services during this critical transition period.
We hope to be able to help connect the dots and bridge the gap of these services so these families can have successful outcomes.
