Transition to Adulthood
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is very often considered to be a childhood condition. The majority of attention is dedicated to children with the diagnosis, and toward early detection and intervention. However, ASD is a lifelong condition, affecting individuals across the lifespan. In this presentation Dr. Sush will discuss how ongoing services, understanding and education are essential to support individuals and families through the transition into adulthood and beyond.
