When Luther Kalb worked at a hospital unit for children with psychiatric problems and developmental disabilities, he heard "horror stories" about the children entering the hospital through the Emergency Room (ER). Later, he became part of a research team that created the first large study of psychiatric-related ER visits for children with autism. The study reached interesting conclusions about how often children with autism visit the ER and why their insurance might play a role.

What happens when someone with autism leaves school and makes the transition to adult services, college, work or new housing? What does research say about the issues that affect adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their families.
