Autism and the Transition

Autism and the Transition

A collection of resources on Autism and the Transition process from k-12, to post-secondary education, work, and community life commonly referred to as transition. The Autism Speaks Transition Tool Kit was created to serve as a guide to assist families on the journey from adolescence to adulthood. Family members of adolescents and young adults with autism between the ages of 14 and 22 may request a complimentary hard copy of the Transition Tool Kit by filling out the Transition Tool Kit order form.

For professionals, service providers, and family members of individuals with autism outside the ages of 14 and 22, we encourage you to download the kit free of charge.
