Family members of adolescents and young adults with autism between the ages of 14 and 22 may request a complimentary hard copy of the Transition Tool Kit by filling out the Transition Tool Kit order form. For professionals, service providers, and family members of individuals with autism outside the ages of 14 and 22, we encourage you to download the kit free of charge.
Since the transition process is different in each state, we have also developed timelines for each state, with additional information, as well as state agency information that may be helpful to you throughout this process. To view the Autism Speaks Transition Tool Kit State Information Page for your state, please visit the Autism Speaks Resource Guide, click on your state, and click on the Transition to Adult Services category.
Click here to visit the Transition Tool Kit Online Appendix page. This page contains many more resources and tools to help guide you and your young adult through the transition process. The Appendix is constantly being updated to keep checking back for new additions! We welcome your submissions to the Transition Tool Kit Online Appendix.
