Preparing for Success in the Workplace for People with Autism Spectrum Disorders

Wednesday, July 31, 2013 -
1:15pm to 4:15pm

People with autism CAN be successful in the workplace if they know and use the skills that the workplace requires. This presentation identifies needed skills and discusses how and when to teach them, and how to involve schools, families, and communities. Participants will learn how some school-based rules and goals can become counterproductive in the workplace and other postsecondary settings. Referencing real-life examples, Ms. Doyle will offer practical, ready-to-implement transition planning strategies and provide useful "take-away" materials.
