Free Webcast TOMORROW – Achieving Meaningful Employment for Youth with ASD: High School Transition the Project SEARCH Way

You still have time to sign up for tomorrow’s webcast from SEDL:

SEDL’s VR Autism Project is offering free upcoming webcasts featuring vocational programs that work!

VR Autism identifies effective programs that assist people with ASD in finding competitive, long-term employment in their communities. Project SEARCH, Triumph Services, and ACN Connections are all programs that have demonstrated effective employment outcomes for people with ASD. Directors from these programs and community partners will get together to share the creative techniques that have helped shape their success in upcoming webcasts.

Project SEARCH is a one-year, school-to-work program for young people with intellectual and developmental disabilities including ASD. Hear about the Project SEARCH model and how New York Collaborates for Autism has adapted this model specifically for people with ASD in this webcast.

  1. What about the older people with Autism?

      Thanks for your comment! We’ve certainly seen that much of the research being funded in autism tends to focus on children, youth, and youth in transition to adulthood. There may be several reasons for this focus: the benefits of early intervention, the demographics of those on the autism spectrum, etc. As the population of people with autism spectrum disorders ages, you will probably see a lot more research on aging with ASD, workplace supports/accommodation, parenting, and so on. I would recommend contacting the VCU ASD project to find out where the research is trending in that direction. You’ll find them online at http://www.vcu-autism.org/
