Linda Walder Fiddle, founder of The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation, possesses singular optimism and vision when it comes to advancing the quality of life and citizenship for adults with autism spectrum disorders. It all started in the year , when her son, Danny, was only nine years old. A forward-thinking mother of a child on the spectrum, Linda found herself researching to locate a program where Danny would one day find the right kind of support as an adult. Although he was attending excellent school programs that supported his specific needs, her look into the autism adult services sector revealed a lack of options. That same year, Danny passed away, but this did not prevent Linda from pressing forward with her vision.

Aging and Long-Term Support Administration
P reventing adolescents becoming lost in the transfer between paediatric and adult health services is a major challenge for healthcare providers, paediatric and adult alike. Until recently British health services have largely ignored adolescents. Transitional care is a multidimensional, multidisciplinary process that addresses not only the medical needs of adolescents as they move from children's services to adult services but also their psychosocial, educational, and vocational needs. The need for such services has been shown by many surveys of young people with various chronic conditions and their care givers, 3 - 6 and is supported by policy documents in the United Kingdom and United States. A recent multicentre trial of a transitional care programme in the UK has begun to address this deficit, with preliminary reports of positive outcomes.
