Children with autism may face a number of challenges as they are growing up. And some of those challenges may continue into adulthood as well.
A recent study found that autistic young adults had the lowest employment rates among their peers with disabilities.
Just under half of those surveyed had never held a job for pay outside the home between the ages of 21 and 25.
The young adults with the best chance of working outside the home were those from higher income homes and those with stronger skills.
