These resources have been developed by The Sinneave Family Foundation through our work, and are based on our learnings about transition planning and skill development for autistic youth and adults. They are intended to be shared as open resources to support autistic and neurodiverse people, their families and caregivers, and they may be of interest to educators, service providers and other support agencies in the community.
Our Communications Guide was commissioned by Autistic experts to offer succinct and actionable ideas and strategies to employ in our work, and to share.
