Moving Forward After School
What if someone with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) finishes school and passes into adulthood work, job training, or a new living situation? Evaluating autism in an adult can be challenging. While high functioning adults on the autism spectrum managed to improvise and develop strategies to make up for their differences making it difficult to conduct diagnosis based on observations.
Autism affects how a person perceives the world making communication and social interaction different from others, this often leads to significant difficulties afterwards. ASD is characterised by social interaction anxiety, communication difficulties and have a greater tendency to engage in repetitive behaviours. Their symptoms and level of severity vary widely across these areas.
Social communication difficulties
- Verbal communication
- Non-verbal communication

- Eating Disorders
- Challenged organisation skills

The process of getting a diagnosis can be difficult for adults. A thorough diagnosis of the disorder lets you can get immediate access to support and holistic treatment for controlling the symptoms and eventually help you lead a better life even with autism.
