Increasingly in the recent 20-30 years, children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have been fortunate to receive behavior intervention and other treatments throughout their childhood to help prepare them with skills for independent living, increased education opportunities, and even job placements. As autism continually becomes more prominent we see some disciplines, such as behavior analysis, education, and pharmacology, scrambling to meet the needs of a person transitioning from childhood to adolescence, adolescence to adulthood, and adulthood to aging. What we also see is a community often unprepared for the influx of persons with ASD joining and successfully participating after their primary education years.

In planning practice, we have learned many professionals, most parents, and almost all of the individuals with high-functioning autism and Aspergers Syndrome we serve are not familiar with the changes that are coming, the decrease in and sometimes non-existent supports, and the need for early, comprehensive planning in response to this unsteady future.

In this webcast, we will focus on identifying how and when to prepare a transition plan for an individual with an autism spectrum disorder. We will familiarize ourselves with the laws and regulations around providing supports for adolescents and adults with autism and other disabilities and/or mental illness during the transition phase. Both Federal and State laws must be considered and currently provide a somewhat rough path for those living with and serving these populations. In addition, if services are available in your state, they follow different laws, systems, and/or departments that provide and monitor service provisions.

This recorded webcast will total 120 minutes with a review of practice and methodology designed for parents, teachers, professionals, counselors, adult service providers, paraprofessionals, BCABA’s and BCBA’s working with person’s with autism and/or supervising treatment, and other professionals working with children with autism and related disorders.
