Autism diagnosis in adults
Many older adults have symptoms of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) but remain undiagnosed. The reason…they reached adulthood before public and clinical awareness of ASD increased and before the current diagnostic criteria for ASD were formulated. Additionally, mild or high-functioning autism is particularly easy to overlook by loved ones and medical professionals alike, as symptoms are not always obvious and misdiagnoses are common.
Moving into adulthood with Autism
The transition from secondary school to adulthood is a pivotal time in the lives of all students. For a student with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) change of any kind can be challenging.
