April has been designated as Autism Awareness month. It is helping people understand about autism today. But what happens when the loved one with autism starts growing into an adult?
As a parent, self-advocate, caregiver, or someone who's passionate about autism advocacy, KEEN Foundation asks for your help to declare May the official Autism Tomorrow month!
Some benefits of this official designation include:
- Support to help children on the spectrum transition from childhood to adulthood and thrive in the real world.
- Creation of a community of parents who will face the "new world" reality of having an adult child on the spectrum.
- Available resources for real life advice from adults on the spectrum and parents on employment, independent living, wills and trusts, sex and marriage and more.
- Answers to questions such as "Where do we go from here?" or "What do I need to do now to help my child prepare for adulthood?"
