Bancroft, in partnership with Ask Your Target Market, conducted a national online poll of parents with children ages 3-21 on the autism spectrum. Survey questions ranged from concerns regarding access to care, transition into adult services and other challenges parents of a child face over a lifetime.
Of the 200 parents surveyed, more than 60 percent cited independence in adulthood as their top concern, although less than 20 percent of those same respondents have a comprehensive transition plan to support their child.
We know how difficult it can be to navigate the critical stage of transition once a child ages out of the school system and into adult services. Check out additional survey findings and discover how to bridge the gap between education entitlements and adult services for your loved one, below:
