About the Quest Foundation: Autism is a lifelong disability, many adults continue to require support throughout adulthood. Adults with autism require teaching to develop more independent life skills, self-help, socialization, and vocational development. They may also face new obstacles such as employment and residential service along with possible behavioral challenges post adolescence. When students turn 21, services are vastly different than those available during school.
