JobTIPS helps individuals with autism who are more abstract thinkers, such as individuals who might consider themselves high-functioning or who were diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome or PDD-NOS, obtain the necessary skills to gain meaningful employment, including the social skills that are critical to identifying, applying for, securing, and maintaining employment. JobTIPS emphasizes peer support as participants share experiences and advice, role play scenarios related to obtaining and keeping a job, and work on resumes.
The JobTIPS vocational program lasts 12 weeks and meets once a week. The next session begins January 11 and runs until March 29. ASNC is admitting participants on a rolling basis, so individuals can apply at any time and will receive information about the next group's start date. After you register, the JobTIPS instructor will contact you to confirm your start date.
