Often adults diagnosed with an ASD come to the Emory Autism Center because they are struggling with common autism-related challenges including social isolation (lack of friends/social activities), finding and/or keeping a job, anxiety or mood problems, or an inability to organize one’s life.   

At the forefront, for most, is the want and need to better understand how to relate with others, including the desire to meet and develop relationships with peers who share similar characteristics, interests and abilities. Yet, they sometimes find it challenging to do so.
