GAO report on Youth with Autism

In the recently released GAO report on Youth with Autism: Roundtable Views of Services Needed During the Transition into Adulthood, the need for Vocational Assessment was noted.

Panelists identified several services and supports which may address the needs of transitioning youth with Autism Spectrum Disorders; including Vocational/career assessments, vocational/career training, and assistance with job searches or interviewing skills. Vocational Assessments would aid in identifying the specific supports a youth needs, based on their individual autism characteristics, skills, strengths, and preferences.
