Teaching Pre-Employment Skills to 14-17 Year Olds
Teaching young people with autism workplace skills while they are still school-aged is essential for helping them get jobs once they are ready to enter employment. This ready-made curriculum does exactly that, with a structured program for teaching groups of students aged 14-17 vital pre-employment skills, from interviewing to networking.
Based on the Autism Works Now!® Workplace Readiness Workshop, this interactive resource shows how to help students aged 14-17 develop the necessary transition skills for getting and keeping a meaningful job, with accompanying worksheets available to download.
Structured around 2-hour weekly sessions over an eight month period, the program is ideal for teaching to groups of students with autism. It covers essential topics such as organization and time management, interview skills, appropriate workplace attire, and networking. It advises on how to arrange a field trip to local businesses so students can gain experience of being in the workplace. Worksheets and questionnaires help to track progress and discover what types of job will be appropriate based on an individual's skills and interests, and the book also includes a template for creating effective resumes.
