This chapter addresses preparation for integrated employment and community living for people with autism spectrum disorders. In order to provide a picture of the state-of-the-art, the chapter begins with an overview of pertinent literature and legislation related to transition services and employment framed by historical perspectives. Implicit challenges in autism spectrum disorders (ASD) that may impact individuals’ transition to employment (e.g., problems with executive functioning and social communication) are covered to help readers gain awareness of services that may be needed to enhance transition outcomes. Necessary components of person-centered secondary and postsecondary education programs are discussed, with a focus on (a) collaborative models that include personnel from varied disciplines, (b) family involvement, and (c) experiences and supports needed to enhance the likelihood of successful outcomes. Models for employment preparation, intervention, and ongoing support are presented.
