Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
face distinct challenges finding work and pursuing career goals.
Reported rates of employment for adults with ASD range from 11 – 50%. For those who are employed, they are often under-employed or work in menial positions.
The Centre for Autism Services Alberta is pleased to deliver the EmploymentWorks program to adults with ASD.
EmploymentWorks offers employment preparedness training and job sampling for individuals diagnosed with autism. It allows participants the opportunity to practice important social skills for the workplace and sample a variety of jobs in a safe learning environment.
This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Opportunities Fund for Persons with Disabilities Program.
