Community and Social Participation
National Longitudinal Transition Study 2 (NLTS-2)
When young adults on the autism spectrum are disconnected from work and continued schooling, sometimes opportunities for socialization, friendships and community participation may be absent as well. We examine social and community participation and social isolation in these highlights from the National Autism Indicators Report.
