The number of autistic students in the district is not going down anytime soon, so AISD is doing everything they can to help students make that transition from the school setting, to the workforce.
"Working with students and trying to give them the social skills and providing them with social skills training is critical," explains Davis.
Kim Wombles, a parent of three autistic children who raised her eldest son without transitional programs.
As opposed to working, Bobby volunteers his time to various agencies.
"Well they asked me to help them out with the bagging so I learned to bag..help with the line," Bobby explains.
Wombles has two younger daughters also on the autism spectrum who may need vocational training in the future that they will be able to get.
"There will be more of a road map for them, where as since we had Bobby at home with us, we kind of figured it out all on our own," says Wombles.
With AISD's transitional plans set in place to meet each student's individual needs, those with autism will be able to gain skills before they graduate.
Bobby say if he did not at minimum get volunteer opportunities, he probably would not be doing anything, which is what AISD is trying to prevent.
"We try to bridge the gap for those students as they exit public education into a more supportive type of employment," says Davis.
