ISAW In-person trainings now available for all KY Business Service Teams

ISAW is now offering face to face training on autism and employment for all Business Service Teams in Kentucky. Now that you have viewed the introductory modules on this site, please schedule a training for your team by selecting a date and time here.  All you need for your training is a space large enough to accommodate your team. I will bring all needed equipment, including laptop and projector. A room with a projection screen would be ideal, but a blank white wall will suffice.

The in-person training expands on information shared in the online modules and also includes many stories of autism in the workplace and advice from our team of expert consultants. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and to receive feedback on any topic related to autism and employment. Please address any questions to baharp2@uky.edu

I am looking forward to this opportunity to meet with you in your region.

 

New Modules on Navigating the Hiring Process

Too often, talented autistic job seekers are overlooked during the hiring process due to communication and social differences. Learn how you can help businesses to better support prospective employees before, during, and after the interview process by viewing modules 3 and 4 here. 

Please let us know if you found this information helpful. What questions do you have about working with businesses to support autistic job candidates? Your questions can be answered via email, or included in future modules and/or in-person trainings.

ISAW is available to meet with Business Service Teams, businesses, employees, and job seekers in your area. Please contact Bev at baharp2@uky.edu for consultation.

 

Two introductory modules posted

Two modules have been posted to the Educational Modules page. The first is an introduction to Innovative Supports for Autistic Workers and explains the need for the project along with our purpose and goals. Module 2 is a brief introduction to autism and employment issues. Here we discuss the most basic features of autism and how these might impact employment. You will also learn what to expect from the more detailed upcoming modules and from the face to face trainings. Find out how you can create your own trainings by submitting questions to ISAW.

ISAW

Innovative Supports for Autistic Workers (ISAW) is a collaborative project by the  Office of Vocational Rehabilitation and the Kentucky Office of Autism, administered by the University of Kentucky’s Human Development Institute. The purpose of the project is to support Business Service Teams across the state in their efforts to assist employers in working with employees on the autism spectrum. The project will provide in-person trainings, online modules, and ongoing technical assistance.
