Employment for Individuals with Autism

Autism Speaks created an Employment Tool Kit to support the increasing employment rate among young adults and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder. This tool has recently been expanded to include three new resources. The first includes an employers guide to hiring employees with ASD, written by an employer experienced in hiring numerous adults with ASD. The second resource is a parent’s guide to employment for adults with ASD, written from the perspective of a parent including resources to find, maintain, and empower your child. The third resource is the Big Business Report, or the expanding roster of companies that have published diversity policies, including the ASD community. Companies include AMC theatres, CISCO, Ernst & Young LLP, The Home Depot, Microsoft, Outback Steakhouse, Target and more.
