The transition from adolescence to adulthood

The transition from adolescence to adulthood can be a challenging time for young people, as they navigate the complexities of the 21st century. For neurodiverse youth, this transition can be particularly difficult, as they may face additional challenges due to their neurodiversity.

There are several challenges that neurodiverse youth may face when transitioning into adulthood. These include:

  • Difficulty finding employment: Many neurodiverse individuals struggle to find employment, as they may have difficulty with the job application process, or may not have the necessary skills and experience
  • Lack of support: Neurodiverse youth may lack the necessary support to succeed in education and the workforce, as they may not receive the accommodations they need to thrive
  • Stigma: Neurodiverse individuals may face stigma and discrimination, which can impact their ability to succeed in education and the workforce
