Adulthood with Autism

OTR_170405_Autism.jpg

For individuals with autism and their families, the transition from adolescence to adulthood can be uncertain, with concerns about work, housing, medical care, and more. We speak to advocate Pam Beck and her son, Brandon, as well as Keily Law, research director of the Interactive Autism Network, about supporting young people with autism as they journey into adulthood.
