    Abstract

    As graduation approaches, it is important to ensure adolescents with autism are learning functional skills that will help prepare them for employment. During this approximately 3 hour live webinar event, Dr. White will present the state of employment for people with autism, and discuss the process for selecting goals across a variety of curriculum areas that will help prepare individuals with autism who have limited language skills, cognitive impairment, and/or behavioral challenges for inclusion in the workplace. She will also present strategies to teach these skills. Dr. White will discuss an assessment tool designed to help determine whether a job is a good match for the adolescent with autism. Finally, she’ll discuss how to adapt teaching techniques for inclusive job settings. Time will be set aside for questions and answers.
