Individualized Services to Promote Success in the Workforce
Across the nation, vocational rehabilitation programs are working to help people with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) secure jobs and succeed in the workforce. SEDL’s Vocational Rehabilitation Service Models for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders project recently designated three employment programs as effective in providing supports to people with ASD.
Triumph Services, Project SEARCH, and ACN Connections address this work in different ways. Yet, each program shares the philosophy that individualized vocational rehabilitation services for people with ASD are necessary to increase competitive employment success rates with livable wages. These programs show that even in the midst of a struggling economy, people across the autism spectrum can—with proper supports—find meaningful work in their communities.
