About the Study
CAIT conducted a research study for the New Jersey Department of Health and the New Jersey Governor’s Council for Medical Research and Treatment of Autism to better understand the transportation and mobility needs of adults on the autism spectrum.
Rutgers’ CAIT received a grant to assess transportation needs, examine barriers, and provide recommendations to develop policies that will improve mobility for adults with ASD.
A critical part of the study included a transportation needs survey to give voice to New Jersey adults with ASD and their family members and their concerns were integrated into the development and promotion of beneficial transportation strategies and programs in our state.
