Living on your own for the very first time can be exciting yet nerve-wracking—you'll search for roommates, interview for jobs, manage finances, and form relationships. But adjusting to this new life can seem especially difficult when you're on the Autism Spectrum. Drawing on her experiences, Lynne Soraya, one of ThAutcast.com's Most Inspiring Autistic People and author of Psychology Today's Asperger's Diary, will provide you with valuable advice as she guides you through each step of your transition into adulthood.

  • Budgeting and handling bills.
  • Finding the right residence and/or roommates.
  • Discovering a career path that complements your talents.

  • Building relationships with friends and potential partners.

With Living Independently on the Autism Spectrum, you will gain the confidence, support, and guidance you need to finally experience life on your own.
