#ASDNext

#ASDNext logoToday we want to highlight a wonderful resource for teens and young adults on the Autism Spectrum, #ASDNext.

#ASDNext is an initiative of the Autism Services, Education, Resources and Training (ASERT) Collaborative.  #ASDNext was conceived to help fill the growing need for resources and support to help teens and young adults with autism transition to “adult” life after school. 

The #ASDnext website has a variety of great resources including blogs by individuals on the spectrum. Several blogs have been posted related to individual experiences with COVID-19 and ways to cope with the changes related to social/physical distancing and PA’s stay at home order. Sometimes it is helpful to hear the relatable stories of others and this may be true for an individual you support, so be sure to direct them to #ASDNext. 

Please send any suggestions or  questions related to this email or requests for additional resources to RA-basprovidersupprt@pa.gov
