Great!
Great!

I just received a copy of Autism Speaks' new Transition Tool Kit, which is described as a guide to assist families on the journey from adolescence to adulthood. I have looked through it, and it seems thorough. It provides guidance on self-advocacy, transition plans, community living, employment, post-secondary education, housing, legal matters, health, internet & technology and getting organized. The Tool Kit is long (over 100 pages), but can be downloaded at no-cost. I think it's something that would be helpful to high school transition teachers, as well as families.

Autism Speaks is also involved in supporting research, and local organizations that provide services to families with loved ones who are on the autism-spectrum.
