(Reuters Health) - Programs are out there to help young adults with autism find and keep a job. But no one yet knows whether they work, according to a study published Monday.
Combing the medical literature for evidence on the question, researchers were able to find only five studies. All were generally low-quality, the team reports in the journal Pediatrics.
"We did identify some small studies with promising results," said lead researcher Julie Lounds Taylor, an assistant professor of pediatrics and special education at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.
