When the School Bus Stops Coming: the dilemma for adults with autism by Dr. David Holmes
After serving as host to Autism One Radio's "Adults on the Autism Spectrum: Today!," I have obtained numerous views as to what adults with autism want and need. These perspectives have come from family members, service providers, advocates and from adults with autism themselves. This presentation will address some of the pressing issues of the day when it comes to what it is that adults with autism want and need and how to access supports that will give them a quality of life that they truly deserve.
