Individuals with autism must prepare for self-advocacy: workplaces, schools, and even service providers can't guess what you need. They must also understand life skills are learned, evolve, and include the social skills. Finally, individuals with autism must understand legal rights change in adulthood, and there are fewer supports to help navigate those rights.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to approach, assess, and "hand-off" self advocacy¬†
  • Begin and advance life and self-maintenance skills
  • Learn that asking for advice before making a mistake prevents problems, "ignorance" is not a legal or employment defense, and "rights" and "accommodations" vary be personal need
