For any young adult, it can often be challenging to live independently as well as establish and maintain work and personal relationships. For those individuals who have been diagnosed with high functioning autism, it could be even more of a struggle.
High functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder is at one end of the autism spectrum. Individuals classified as “high-functioning” tend to have signs and symptoms less severe than with other forms of autism. Often times, an individual with high functioning autism usually have an average or above average intelligence level.
Whether a person is labeled with high functioning autism or with Asperger’s Syndrome, both present daily challenges for both the individual and their family. These individuals typically have a hard time with social interactions, especially making eye contact, lack of empathy and general communication skills.
