Transition Survival 104: Vocational Topics and Job Coaching

Lesson Presentation

People with autism often learn differently and may require a different level of vocational training and support system. Because people with autism have varying strengths, challenges, and cognitive abilities, it is crucial that, in order to help them learn, practice, and appropriately generalize skills needed for them to be successful in the vocational environment, a thorough assessment is done that includes the job seeker with autism so he or she can provide input about what types of work he or she would like to engage in. It is also important to encourage the job seeker’s self-awareness of his or her strengths, gifts, and differences to empower the job seeker while helping establish his or her motivation to succeed.
