Autism 206: Transition to Adulthood: Finding a Job

Transition from school to the adult world and successfully finding a job can be complicated and confusing. Navigating resources can be a formidable and overwhelming challenge for most students and their families. Being prepared requires early planning, appropriate expectations and opportunities. Understanding what resources are available and how to obtain them is critical for decision making and taking action. This session seeks to help participants better understand support systems, resources, and how to access vital services. It will also cover the importance of starting early, breaking down steps that lead to employment, and the importance of advocacy and collaboration.
