Publications


Here you'll find our publications on the service needs and outcomes of people on the autism spectrum. We report on a variety of indicators related to transition planning, education, employment and several other topics.

Our holistic approach allows us to look not only at how an individual topic affects the overall quality of life, but how these different aspects of life work together to produce more positive life outcomes.
