Program Details:
Approximately 58% of young adults with autism have ever worked between high school and their early 20s (Roux, Shattuck, Rast, Rava, & Anderson, 2015). In addition, this group is disproportionately under-employed compared to their peers without such a diagnosis, and with those with other kinds of diagnoses, including individuals with other neurodiversity characteristics.

Join this session and learn:
  • To become aware of the barriers in the job interview process that impeded successful hiring outcomes for individuals with autism
  • To be able to identify ways that community service providers can better support Autistic individuals in the job interview process
  • How employers can reshape their interview process to heighten the likelihood of successfully hiring neurodiverse individuals, especially those with autism
