Adult Services By the Numbers

The Autism Speaks Adult Services team works to promote services and supports for adults with autism spectrum disorders throughout the lifespan. Now a central pillar of the Autism Speaks mission, the team works to increase the quality and quantity of opportunities and resources available to adults with autism related to employment, housing and community living, postsecondary education, community integration and more. 

Over the past three years, these efforts have largely been focused on helping adults with autism connect with crucial resources in their own communities.

Here is a glimpse of the efforts of the adult services work at Autism Speaks:

All of the grants, town halls, tool kits, etc. listed above are only a small part what we can all do to support a person with autism. But true impact is measured by each individual’s quality of life. Adults with autism are our neighbors, our friends, families and colleagues, and they are leading the future efforts of adult initiatives at Autism Speaks.
