Making It Last: Workplace Supports for People with Autism

Submitted by Melanie.Jordan on Tue, 11/03/2015 - 10:27

Something amazing is happening with autism employment - in Belgium! Although focused on "high functioning autism", the Belgian approach has many lessons for employment services to people with "classic" autism. We will discuss their techniques for synthesizing assessment results into a whole-person perspective, and using that to plan workplace supports. Toward the end of the session, one of the leading autism employment practitioners in the US will join us for an interactive conversation about other emerging practices.

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • List three common workplace supports for adults with autism
  • Describe at least two ways Mind Mapping software can be useful in employment services
  • Describe two other best practices being used in this country for autism employment
