Transition to Adulthood

CHOP is excited to announce a new transition to adulthood program for autistic teens and young adults. The program is focused on improving outcomes for autistic individuals. To do this, CHOP’s Center for Autism Research will partner with other departments at CHOP and community organizations. We believe that a successful transition to adulthood invests in each person's skills for independence and builds a sense of well-being. Success will look different for each person. We are committed to working with families to help plan and achieve individualized goals for transition.

The transition to adulthood program aims to serve autistic teens and young adults navigating the transition out of high school and into adulthood. The program is made up of three main components: a Clinical Program, an Education Program, and a Research Program.

CAR Needs Your Input!

We are seeking community input in setting our short- and long-term priorities for the future of the program. If you would like to find out more about this new transition to adulthood program and provide your opinions about priorities across any of our components, please complete our form.

We would like to thank the CHOP Women's Committee and Margaret and Paul Hondros for their generous support of this transition to adulthood program.
