Now what? When Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders Become Adults

Thanks to Karel and my mom for sending me the same excellent article within 24 hours of each other. After reading, I recommend it to anyone with a special needs child, even if they aren’t on the spectrum. This is one of those topics that keeps me up at night.

There is a link to a cool transition tool for families and adolescents in the article as well. I posted the link to the Transition Tool Kit* below the link for the Times article – both are definitely worth a look!
