Autism Employment Pilot
Avalon Employment Inc. is excited to announce the launch of a new Autism Employment Pilot beginning Monday, June 15, 2020. This Pilot aims to assist persons with Autism Spectrum Disorder obtain and maintain meaningful, long term employment.
Through session based Professional Development, the Pilot intends to support the participating Job Seekers through the job searching process, developing and improving upon social and communicative goals and in preparing a personalized employee tool kit which will provide strategies and accommodations to encourage independence and success in the work place.
The Pilot will also work with employers to provide insight into accommodations and strategies to support the employed Job Seeker as they work independently.
Participating Job Seekers under this Pilot are 18 years of age or older, have a diagnosis of Autism and are able to work independently. There is no funding for a job coach under this Pilot. This Pilot is funded by the Department of Advanced Education Skills and Labour, Newfoundland and Labrador.
