Young adults with special needs
Young adults with brain injury, autism spectrum disorder ASD , and other developmental disabilities have social needs and experience sexual feelings just like everyone else. When they see their siblings or typically developing peers beginning to date, they may express an interest in dating too, if they have the necessary communication skills. However, they may be uncertain or fearful about how to interact with someone they are attracted to. The following are tips for parents or caregivers who want to help the young men and women they care for learn about dating, healthy relationships, and appropriate sexual behavior.

Autism Special Needs Checklist: Teens & Young Adults (for Parents) - Nemours KidsHealth

What about employment? It's a lot to consider, but transition planning can help. With some careful thought and help from your child's school, doctors, and your state's government agencies, you can make the move to adulthood as smooth as possible for you and your child. Some schools start planning for a teen's future at age 13 or 14; by federal law, a transition individualized education program IEP must be started by age
