Students with Autism Prepare for Life After High School

TOWNSHEND, Vt. -- Before Lora Barrows' son received his diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder, the family's life was filled with confusion, frustration and uncertainty.

It would take another two years before a specialist finally determined that Ben had an autism spectrum disorder.
