Autism is not black and white. There are many shades in between. While some individuals may not be able to live on their own a great many are very capable of doing so. Individuals diagnosed with autism or aspergers may need some additional training or mentoring to assist them in their journey. Life skill classes can enrich the lives of these individuals and make it easier for them to live on their own. Classes could include cooking, cleaning, interpersonal and social cues, and safety procedures.
