Integrating Young Adults with Autism Spectrum and IDD into Clinical Practice

Got Transition has published two new tip sheets with suggestions to help adult health care providers successfully integrate young adults into their practices. The tip sheets — designed for adult practices caring for young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD) — include ideas and activities to prepare an adult clinician’s office and staff, as well as tips to consider prior to, during, and after the initial visit. Each tip sheet also includes possible accommodations for improved care.
