Transitioning from High School to Work - Preparing Students with Autism for Adulthood
Vicki Lundine & Catherine Smith

{View Brochure}

The emphasis on transition from high school to work is a focus in Grades 10-12 but the process should begin much earlier for students with ASD. Attitudes toward work combined with decisions we make for children with autism can significantly influence the path they may choose to follow. The workshop will define the roles and responsibilities for individuals supporting students as they mature, including parents, and will provide participants with information and strategies which help promote meaningful participation for students with ASD in the work world.

Get a head start on the workshop material by ordering a copy of Career Training and Personal Planning for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders via ACT's Amazon bookstore!
