Videoblog: Adults with Autism

Paul Shattuck thanks the Autism Speaks community for supporting research on adults with autism.

Paul Shattuck, PhD, of Washington University, in St. Louis, has focused his research on the needs of adults with autism. In a recent study, he found that young adults with autism are less likely to be employed or enrolled in higher education after high school than are individuals with other disabilities. In this video, he discusses why research on adults with autism is so important and thanks the Autism Speaks community for funding his research.
