Adaptive Functioning for Adolescents with Autism After High School: A Review of Literature


This issue of NASET’s Autism Spectrum Disorder series was written by Lena Alonso. Several adults with autism struggle to perform functional skills independently upon graduating from high school. Challenges in performing daily living skills may result in limited levels of independence. The purpose of this literature review is to examine the efficacy of high school curriculums and diploma options in order to determine valuable evidence-based practices which will improve the lives of individuals struggling to perform functional tasks.
