Urban Autism Solutions helps young adults with autism and related disorders build a better life.

Young adults with autism struggle with post-secondary success, especially in the first two years after high school. Our goal is to change that.


Beginning at our UAS West Side Transition Academy, Urban Autism Solutions works with West Side Chicago Public High School students to provide person-centered programs. Each program helps young adults with autism and related disorders develop social and soft skills, cultivate connections with their community, prepare for job interviews when applicable, and achieve their personal goals. With our team of experts, including graduate students from Speech and Language Therapy, Social Work and Occupational Therapy, we empower our clients to live life with confidence.

"Urban Autism Solutions is the first autism-based group that my brother has willingly and enthusiastically attended.  Everyone we’ve met at UAS has been inclusive, gracious, knowledgeable and kind.  Matt has attended cooking classes, baseball games, and movie nights and always comes home from these events stating how much fun he had.  These events have become the cornerstone of his social life. For the first time in his adult life, he has the opportunity to participate in age-appropriate activities that aren’t facilitated by family members."
