As children with autism spectrum disorders approach adolescence, they and their caretakers face a major educational challenge: planning for their adult lives, which includes vocational, recreational, and living arrangements. When Gary Mesibov, Eric Schopler, Bruce Schaeffer, and Rhoda Landrus created The Adolescent and Adult Psychoeducational Profile (AAPEP) in 1988, their intent was to design a highly structured, skills-based instrument to evaluate students' current and potential skills in those areas most important for successful, semi- independent functioning in the home and the community. Considering the service options of the 1980s, most adults with moderate to severe mental retardation sought placements in sheltered employment settings and community-based group homes. Since then, several important changes have occurred. Partly in response to improving educational opportunities, more individuals are reaching adulthood with milder forms of mental and social delay. As a result, increasing numbers of individuals with autism spectrum disorders do not require a sheltered environment, but can contribute to community-based jobs in offices, in manufac- turing, in retail businesses, and in other sites.
