In September 2017, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services publicly released a report to Congress focusing on young adults and transition-age youth with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), as mandated by the Autism CARES Act of 2014. The report summarizes existing federal initiatives (across agencies) focused on transition and identifies gaps in research, programs, and services. AUCD has developed this abbreviated summary of key findings as a resource for the LEND and DBP networks.
