Young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) often have trouble finding employment and many are unable to sustain jobs for long periods of time
Many young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder are much more likely than the average person to have anxiety and depressive disorders.
Why New Directions for Young Adults? New Directions for Young Adults is a comprehensive program that utilizes a team based approach. I have worked in many areas of psychology and found that a team based approach increases staff involvement to provide more unified treatment and produces better outcomes for clients. As a clinician it is important to me to be part of a practice that prioritizes the quality of care for its clients and NDFYA definitely puts their clients first.
