Event Type

LocationWilliam Wulf Room
DescriptionApproximately 2% of college students throughout the US meet DSM-5 criteria for autism. 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.
