Video Summary

  • The focus on autism often centers around children, but there is a need for support and understanding for adults on the spectrum as well.
  • Sara Kerchak, an adult with autism, is working to change the representation and treatment of adults with autism.
  • Sara challenges the notion of separating the disability from the person and believes that autism is a fundamental part of her identity.
  • Day-to-day life for Sara involves managing sensory issues, executive function disorder, and navigating social situations, which can be draining and require a lot of energy.
  • After aging out of the support system, many adults with autism feel a lack of resources and face challenges in finding housing, employment, and ongoing support.
