The support for autistic adults can be very minimal, if non-existent, and it can be a shock to the system when you’ve come from a school full of support. Losing your one-to-one, the teachers who know your needs or even school if it was a safe space is heart-breaking, so imagine then being told you don’t get any additional help when you’re an adult!
The realm of adulthood is a frightening place, full of bills and taxes. There’s no crash course in being an adult, just like there’s no crash course in living in a world full of neurotypicals, however there are ways to cope in this minefield.
If you’re autistic, or have an autistic child/family member who are about to leave education and go out to work, it is less of a shock to the system if procedures are put in place BEFORE the move is made. Adulthood needs to be broken down into life and functional skills to make it less terrifying.
