The age of majority is the moment when minors cease to be considered children and assume legal control over their persons, actions, and decisions, thus terminating the control and legal responsibilities of their parents or guardian over them. The word majority refers to having greater years and being of full age as opposed to minority, the state of being a minor. The law in a given jurisdiction may not actually use the term "age of majority." The term typically refers to a collection of laws bestowing the status of adulthood. The age of majority does not necessarily correspond to the mental or physical maturity of an individual.
The National Autism Association recently published The Age of Majority: A Guide for Caregivers on How to Plan & Prepare. The purpose of this guide is to help alleviate some of the stressors involved in preparing your child for a successful transition into adulthood. The guide provides education, tips and resources centered on three critical parts of the process.
