  2. Great webinar for an overview on this topic. I am a CRC and Speech Language Pathologist working with young adults with ASD at the high school level. I appreciate your comments and credit to the niche area of social communication and pragmatic work we do with students. I hope to help young adults in this area before they leave high school as well as to set them up with resouces such as VR and counseling to help ensure their success into yound adulthood. Thank you for all you do!
