Autism awareness has dramatically increased over the past few decades. This rise in autism awareness and subsequently, research, has increased the availability of evidence-based treatment for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). However, treatment is limited for adults with ASD (Gerhardt & Lainer, 2011; Milley & Machalicek, 2012). The lack of services for adults contributes to some of the challenges they face such as unemployment, reliance on caregivers, and limited social relationships (Howlin, Goode, Hutton, & Rutter, 2004). These challenges can significantly reduce the quality of life adults with ASD experience.

What is Autism?

Posted by on in Autism

The sound of children laughing and playing in the sunshine with their friends as they slide down a slide or hang from monkey bars on a playground is priceless. They have not a care in the world. Unfortunately, for the parents of many children, this beautiful picture is just a dream.
