Leaving high school is a time of great change for all youth, but especially for youth with ASD. This research study will examine the changes that happen for youth with ASD during this time as well as the factors associated with a positive transition. We will be looking at stress response, behaviors, services, and the family environment.
Each visit will involve:
Youth with a diagnosis on the autism spectrum who are in their last year of high school or planning to leave high school within the next 12 months.
$40 for each visit and a report of the evaluation
3 visits over 2 years
