Supporting Individuals with Autism in the Employment World

Mike Chapman, statewide Director of Services for TEACCH’s Supported Employment Program, will discuss the holistic needs of supporting employees with ASD in the workplace. Topics of discussion will include: assessment; approaching employers; job site training supports; and ongoing supports necessary to maintain employment. Assessment practices that support the most successful job match will be reviewed, along with specific teaching strategies and supports used to enhance employment opportunities and independence in the work place. The presenter will emphasize the importance of developing and maintaining long-term relationships with employers, and how best to modify existing practices – or develop new ones – to support people with ASD and their employers.
