Autism POVs: Jack's Transition to Adulthood

In this episode, we’ll talk about a very important phase of life for young people with autism – the transition to adulthood. It’s recommended that families start planning for this important transition when their children are 14 years old.

We will provide autism transition strategies and a link to download the Autism Speaks Transition Tool Kit. We’ll speak to an expert to bring you more important tips and information. You’ll also learn about an incredible young man who is nearing adulthood and working hard to prepare. 16-year-old Jack Ursitti has autism and is mostly nonverbal – he communicates with his iPad.

We’re also excited to tell you about a new partnership between Autism Speaks and Gillette TREO, the first razor designed with caregivers in mind.
