Summary
In the next five years, hundreds of thousands of children with autism spectrum disorder will reach adulthood. And while diagnosis and treatment for children has improved dramatically in recent years, no one is answering the question that plagues so many parents: What happens to my child when I am no longer able to care for or assist him? In this ground-breaking book, autism expert Chantal Sicile-Kira and her son Jeremy take on the challenge of planning for the full lifespan. Working together and drawing on the insights of others facing the same challenges, they offer real solutions to a host of difficult questions, including how young adults across the autism spectrum can: *negotiate adult life in this new economy where adult service resources are scarce *cope with the difficulties of living apart from the nuclear family *create and maintain a support network, including friends, support staff, and therapists *find and keep a job that provides meaning, stability and an income *discover the joys of fulfilling relationships
