What Happens To Young Adults With Autism

Powerful story from WCSH6 in Portland, Maine that highlights a story that has been ignored long enough by the media. What happens when children with autism and grow up and become adults? It's a whole new ballgame. Kudos to WCSH6 for this story. Be sure to watch the video.

GARDINER, Maine (WSCH6 NEWS CENTER) -- Since kindergarten, Kevin Stevens of Gardiner has received school based services to help him with his developmental problems. But those programs which helped make huge strides in learning social skills end when stevens graduates next month. His father says who is going provide support for his son well into adulthood -- is always on his mind.
"There is always those times when you feel it's your darkest hour. Where you're thinking about i'm getting older, kevin's getting older, you do think about that a lot actually." said Dan Stevens, Kevin's Father.
