Autism and Employment
This full-day course is aimed at parents/carers and professionals who already have a basic understanding of the autism spectrum. It aims to meet the increase in demand in a requirement to fulfil the obligations of the Autism Act (2009), as many employers, practitioners in social services and other adults services who work with adults on the autism spectrum appreciate the skills set this group of individuals have and their ability to contribute to the jobs market yet also recognise the difficulties they have in obtaining relevant and meaningful employment.
Whenever possible we engage guest speakers who are on the autism spectrum on this course to explain their unique personal experiences.
By the end of this course you will:
- To know the difficulties people on the autism spectrum have in gaining meaningful employment
- To know the needs and difficulties the person on the autism spectrum has in a working environment
- To be able to implement appropriate strategies and interventions to support an individual on the autism spectrum in their working environment
