When we discuss autism and relevant supports, it’s important not to overlook teenagers. Quite often the autistic life cycle is split between when you’re a childhood and when you’re an adult. When you’re a child, getting a diagnosis, school place and the right supports is the big priority. When you grow up you might become concerned about college or finding a job. But your teenage years are an important bridge between these life stages. Teenagers, autistic and neurotypical alike, face a number of challenges. Exam pressure, puberty, socializing, bullying and the anxiety produced by all of these can be a lot to cope with, especially if you’re autistic. This section will set out information on how to keep as happy and healthy as possible during these years!
