Discover this untapped Resource and Culture – Autism Spectrum Disorder

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) 1 out of 59 children are affected with some form of Autism Spectrum Disorder.  These increasing numbers mean more adults will be entering the workforce with ASD. They seek employment and inclusion in the workforce, housing, education and many other areas. Learn to work with this community. Dispel myths about work ethics, be informed on how to handle this disability and be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). 

In this panel discussion, moderated by Chapter member, Francine Lahm, you will listen to experts talk about accommodations, resources and services that help with transitions into the workforce and hear first-hand experiences from two of our very own Administrators. 

Here are a few of the questions that will be answered during our panel discussion.

  • What type of accommodations do these applicants need?
  • How do ADA laws affect the hiring process?
  • Are there resources available to employers?
  • In terms of emergency contacts is there any other information we should know?
  • Is shadowing or coaching necessary in all cases?
