Development of a Comprehensive Guide about Employment for Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders

The Heldrich Center worked with Autism New Jersey to help adults with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) better prepare to enter and thrive in the work world. The project developed a guide that offers useful and clear information about the New Jersey labor market and where jobs are expected to grow; provides information about New Jersey-based resources available to help job seekers look for work that best suits their strengths, aspirations, and needs; and what public and private benefits and resources are available to help maintain employment. The guide also provides useful information about individuals' civil rights to employment and accommodation in the workplace.
