Adolescence and puberty are the most important stage in an individual's transition from childhood to the world of an adult. The changes he goes through are radical and significant for what he knows about himself and introduces to others. Physical, psychological and social changes characterize and accompany adolescents throughout this journey. The way each of them copes with these changes is different based on personal characteristics as well as gender and cultural ones. But mostly on the basis of the presence of a possible disorder such as autism. As a stage that is present during a lifetime period in every person without exception, the ones with ASD go through a serie of challenges and difficulties that need to be focused on during this process.
