We are pleased that GW's Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Institute will
perform research and policy work to address the needs of people with autism across
various life stages. As our son matured, both he and our family began to face new
challenges. There were not a lot of good programs, policies or strategies for individuals
with autism transitioning to adulthood.
