The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

July 30 Seminar on Where to go NEXT: Preparation for Employment

Where to go NEXT: Preparation for Employment
8AM - 12PM

Persons with autism need to be prepared for work when they get older. Unfortunately, there is a gap between and actual practice.

To address this gap, a group of professionals started the IDEA Project (Independence, Dignity, Employability and Employment, and Advocacy) to empower the Adults with Intellectual Disabilities and their families with knowledge about adult outcomes and what happens after school, largely focusing on Independence, Dignity, Employability and Advocacy.

In this seminar, you will get to know the occupational options for PWAs, the existing models of employment, get an overview of how to prepare them for productive occupations many more.
