Working to improve life after High School for students with Autism

The Autism Transition to Adulthood Initiative (ATTAIN) is a multi-year initiative led by researchers at the Yang-Tan Institute on Employment and Disability at Cornell University’s ILR School. The purpose of ATTAIN is to help improve post-school outcomes for young adults with autism through identifying which high school experiences (called predictors) increase the likelihood of obtaining a job, pursuing college/university, or living on one’s own (or with roommates) after high school.
