For many teens, the road to adulthood officially begins when they graduate. But for people with autism, leaving high school is a more monumental step, one that will transform their relationship to services and support.
What happens when someone with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) leaves school and makes the transition to adult services, college, work, job training, or a new living situation?
Today we face a critical and vast gap in the areas of support services and programs, a surprising number of young adults with autism struggle with daily living skills — hygiene, shopping, or preparing a meal — regardless of intelligence, and required assistance or supervision.
Daily living skills are key to independence for people with autism.
As parents of Autistic young adults, our concerns are shared and constant;
As a single father of a young adult with ASD, I was unable to find a safe and reliable solution to those questions…so it became my mission to create that solution for my son and others.
That solution is Redoma.
Redoma is a gathering place for a community of dedicated families, entrepreneurs, funders, and experts collaborating to provide care and day services that promote physical activity, social interaction, enhanced self-esteem, and creative expression for young adults with autism, and intellectual and developmental disabilities.
