In the next decade, approximately half a million people with ASD will age into adulthood (Roux et al., 2017). That’s 50,000 young adults with ASD each year entering adulthood and aging out of school-based autism services. ASD is a life-long disability. Adults with ASD require continued support and education to learn skills needed to be productive members of their community. Services for adult with ASD are not considered entitlement. Although adult services are based on eligibility, the services are also based on the availability of funding. Meaning, if funding is not available, then adults with ASD do not receive the services they desperately need and deserve.
