Employment is an important occupation in adult life. However, adults with ASD have poor work outcomes. To identify the role of school supports in predicting work outcomes, we conducted secondary analysis using a nationally representative dataset. We found school supports are an important mediator of work outcomes. However, youth who were higher-functioning received fewer school supports. OTs have a role in helping youth prepare for support needs.
