Need help transitioning from School into adult life?
Aspect has released a world-first website for young people on the spectrum and their families.
Called 'Launchpad', the free online resource has been created to support teenagers and young people, aged 16 and over. It covers the major topics they need to know about as they transition from school to adult life including study, work, health, social life, learning to drive, independent living and self-advocacy.
Vicki Gibbs, clinical psychologist and manager of Aspect Assessments, explains that the transition from school is “a crucial time in any young adult’s life and is particularly challenging for young people on the autism spectrum.”
“Young people and their families have been significantly under-resourced during this important life stage. We hope Launchpad will address a gap in reliable information to support them, especially as autism is a lifelong developmental condition affecting an estimated 1 in 70 people of all ages ”, Gibbs continues.
Launchpad features two separate sections for young people and parents throughout each topic. This means that the free website is useful for all young people on the spectrum, whatever their strengths and challenges.
