Autism Spectrum Disorder in Teenagers & Adults
According to the CDC's 2020 Community Report on Autism, a greater number of children identified with ASD has led to a growing interest in the transition to adolescence and adulthood. For most young people, including those with ASD, adolescence and young adulthood are filled with new challenges, responsibilities, and opportunities. However, research suggests fewer young people with ASD have the same opportunities as their peers without ASD.
- High rates of unemployment or under-employment [1-7]
- Low participation in education beyond high school [4, 7, 8]
- Majority continue to live with family members or relatives [1, 9]
- Limited opportunity for community or social activities—nearly 40% spend little or no time with friends [6, 10-12]
In addition, individuals with ASD may experience changes in their ASD symptoms, behaviors, and co-occurring health conditions during adolescence and young adulthood. These changes can affect their ability to function and participate in the community.
