In December 2013, the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN) released a policy brief on addressing the health care needs of youth with autism and other developmental disabilities as they transition to adulthood.

In this webinar, Samantha Crane, ASAN’s Director of Public Policy, discusses concepts from the brief. She also provides recommendations to ensure that young adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) receive consistent access to quality health care, as well as support in taking on adult levels of autonomy with respect to their own health care needs.
