Aging Out is completed!
"Collins-Porter asks the hard questions about where our young adults with autism are now, and where they're going. She doesn't sugarcoat their lives or the lives of their families, but offers hope."--Judith Newman, New York Times bestselling author of To Siri with Love: A Mother, Her Autistic Son, and the Kindness of Machines.
Aging Out is a film that explores a rapidly expanding population, that of young adults with autism who "age out" of the abundant support systems available to them as children and face being left adrift in society as they reach the critical ages of 18 to 21.
Aging Out is an honest, unflinching appraisal of the paths and choices facing families with autistic young adults. This film raises issues that confront these young adults through personal stories, to answer the growing question of how autistic adults can find a place for themselves in a society that may not be prepared for their needs.
