NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Young adults with autism are less likely to go to college or hold down a job than their peers with other types of disabilities, a new U.S. study finds.
Researchers found that more than one-third of young adults with an autism spectrum disorder had not gotten a job or gone into higher education since high school. And that number was much higher compared with young adults with learning disabilities or other impairments.
