Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

A program was launched in 2016 to draw a portrait of the social participation of adults with ASD and identify barriers and facilitators to their social participation. We conducted an online survey with 16- to 40-year-old adults with ASD (n = 201) and with parents of adults with ASD (n = 107). Areas investigated included: education, work, leisure, housing, and responsibility from the Human Development Model conceptual framework—Disability Creation Process (HDM-DCP).
