Literally ...

From an article on adults with autism in today's Ottawa Citizen :
The transition from youth to adulthood is the weakest link in the country’s already fractured approach to caring for children on the spectrum, critics charge.
And the situation only gets worse once they become adults.
“People are literally falling off the edge of a cliff trying to make it over to the adult side,” says Kevin Stoddart, a clinical psychologist.
Wow - they should put up a guard rail or something.
