What challenges do adults on the spectrum face?
Answer The first challenge is that some may not be diagnosed and therefore not understand why they are having difficulties. Another significant challenge is maintaining a social life and relationships. Yet another challenge is both obtaining and maintaining employment. All of these challenges combined with difficulties dealing with emotions can create a situation of stress and confusion that is difficult to resolve without outside help.
