A Day in the Life of an Adult with Autism

Josh tells us that he lives a happy life, and this video shows why.

He is an adult with autism who lives in a care facility, and his younger brother, Eli, serves as his guardian.

Josh receives significant support from his brother and the staff at the care center.

However, low pay for care center staff means high turnover, so Josh often has to say goodbye to staff members to whom he’s become very attached.

In spite of this setback, Josh is one of the lucky ones; as Eli explains, waiting lists for these facilities are long, and the population of adults with autism outstrips the available resources for them.

When many think of autism, they think of children. But those kids with autism will eventually become adults with autism.

This video highlights just how desperately society needs to increase the amount of autism services and supports for adults.
