2020 Tapia Conference

It Takes a Village: Creating and Implementing an Autism to Work Program for Students

Wednesday, September 16, 2020 (Central Time) — 1:30PM - 2:15PM

Approximately 2% of college students throughout the US meet DSM-5 criteria for autism spectrum disorder. After graduation, most of these students end up at home unemployed, or underemployed in a low-paying career not requiring a college degree. The good news: campus career services and corporate university recruitment programs can work together to correct this trend. Participants will engage in an in-depth discussion covering the research, creation, implementation, and maintenance for an autism-to-work program at the university and corporate level. This will be a dynamic session where participants will develop action plans they can take back to their organizations and implement them.
