Boosting Post-School Outcomes: Development and Evaluation of an Online Transition Planning Program for Adolescents on the Autism Spectrum
MetadataShow full item record
Adolescents on the autism spectrum have numerous strengths, however many have difficulty transitioning to post-school employment or higher education. BOOST-A is a web-based, autism-specific program developed to prepare adolescents on the autism spectrum for leaving school. BOOST-A supports the development of future job pathways and employment-readiness skills. A quasi-randomised controlled trial determined that BOOST-A increased career exploration and self-determined behaviour related to transition planning. Findings support the need for strengths-based and autism-specific transition planning.
