Achieving “Adulting”: Working with Young Adults with Neurocognitive Challenges: A Developmental Model

Nechama Sorscher, Ph.D.

This article explores the myriad challenges facing young, neuroatypical adults struggling through a “failure to launch” – i.e., enduring a pronounced difficulty with establishing themselves academically, socially and professionally after high school graduation.

The theoretical underpinnings as well as clinical implications of this approach are discussed.
