Adolescents and young adults with autism spectrum disorders face a multitude of challenges and are experiencing poor life outcomes. This book has summarized the research on practices designed to mitigate these challenges and to improve their life outcomes. There are two recurrent and interconnected themes that have been present throughout the book. The first is that there is immense heterogeneity across individuals with ASD. The second is that the tools for improving outcomes for this population exist, but they may not have been systematically researched with this population. Given the current outcomes for this population, continued research all areas is essential for discovering approaches that will improve the outcomes and quality of life for young adults with ASD. This chapter summarizes the book and provides suggestions for future research.
