Society Is Letting Autistic People Down

Transitions to adulthood are a vital area where much more needs to be done. There is very little information on whether children find it easier to work in certain professions (for example ones where routine and structure is required). Only by learning more about how autistic children do later in life can we make sure that their education is sufficiently tailored to maximise the chances of them entering the workplace successfully. Only a combination of more resources, more dedication, more support and more understanding will help ensure that every autistic child lives a life worth living.
