These real-life strategies will help you cope with the feelings brought on by this change as well as deal with common challenges, like:
  • Budgeting and handling bills.
  • Finding the right residence and/or roommates.
  • Discovering a career path that complements your talents.
  • Interacting with coworkers and clients.
  • Building relationships with friends and potential partners.

With Living Independently on the Autism Spectrum, you will gain the confidence, support, and guidance you need to finally experience life on your own.
