With rising rates of autism and with increasingly effective early intervention, larger numbers of individuals with ASDs are reaching adulthood with the potential to lead independent, productive, and fulfilling lives. Yet, many find themselves stuck – socially isolated, lonely, and struggling academically and vocationally. We take a strength-based, optimistic view by defining the problems, identifying common strengths, and focusing on practical, workable and empirically supported, and neuropsychologically informed solutions to those problems.
