Webinar September 24th, 2020, with the Asperger / Autism Network of Watertown, MA. A strong team of providers can be a key element to success in transition-age years for adults on the autism spectrum. However when young adults leave the school system, transition to adult medical care, and other adult services, a provider team can change dramatically.
* This webinar will discuss:
- common key providers for transition-age adults on the spectrum
- tips for identifying the right providers
- how to keep – or better place – the adult at the center of their own team.
