Autism and growing up looks different for every autistic individual and their family

Although, across the spectrum we see the following challenges:

  • 80% of adults on the autism spectrum are unemployed.

  • The majority of autistic adults live at home with their parents and family members.

  • They also have the lowest levels of self-advocacy in comparison to their peers.

  • The search for resources, services, & answers online is overwhelming, confusing & difficult.


Our mission is to help you find what works for you by giving you an inside look at what’s really working for others. You get access to an open, honest dialogue about the unique ways to support autistic individuals today.

At Autism Grown Up, we produce a podcast that deep dives on how different autistic individuals, families, and professionals make it work. We also host a private network and facilitated groups so that you can connect with others in the community and discover what works for you.
