This figure outlines the flow of articles identified for the review. We located a total of 4,855 citations. Of these, 1,035 required full-text review. Of the 1,035 full text articles reviewed, we retained 32 papers (comprising 32 unique studies) and excluded 1,003 papers. Papers could be excluded for multiple reasons, and a number were excluded because they were not relevant to the Key Questions (n=840), did not include individuals with ASD in our target age range of 13 to 30 years (n=834), did not include at least 20 adolescents or young adults with ASD or their family members (n=845), or were not original research (n=156).
