Lurie Center for Autism: Transition Support Services

The Lurie Center at Massachusetts General Hospital provides support to our families of adolescents and young adults with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) as they transition into adulthood.

The Lurie Center is committed to guiding families of adolescents and young adults with autism spectrum (ASD) and other developmental disabilities as they transition into adulthood and learn to navigate and access adult services in Massachusetts. Our neurodevelopmental physician identifies needs, provides recommendations and coordination of care, while our family support clinician offers information and guidance about vocational, community, legal and educational resources, as well as helps families in obtaining guardianship, and accessing public benefits and related programs. The clinician helps families to organize an action plan along the transition time line (age 14-22 years).
