Why is health care transition important in ASD?
Who receives health care transition services?
Because of the number of youth with ASD, the health care and specialty needs of individuals with ASD, and the frequency with which other health conditions co-occur, the population of youth with ASD is vulnerable to insufficient health care services and unmet need for care and specialty care.
