A presidential issue: employment and autism

Published February 15, 2016

In honor of President’s Day in the United States, today’s podcast is a summary of a few more recent studies on employment of people with autism spectrum disorder. In addition to identifying challenges between the perspectives between employees and employers on the purpose of job supports, new methods to increase and maintain employment of people with ASD are reviewed. They include supportive employment environments and self-instruction. Both could be cost-effective in the long run. These studies add to an ever emerging literature on employment strategies in people with autism, and hopefully there will be more on this topic in the future.  http://asfpodcast.org/?p=148
