Drexel Tracks Transition into Young Adulthood

The “National Autism Indicators Report: Transition into Young Adulthood” is a comprehensive report by Drexel University’s A.J. Drexel Autism Institute, from its Life Course Outcomes Research Program. It presents new findings about a wide range of experiences and outcomes of youth on the autism spectrum between high school and their early 20s, including new safety and risk indicators for young adults with autism. Health management and policy associate professor Dr. Paul Shattuck spoke with NPR’s On Point with Tom Ashbrook about the new study.
