202: What's So Different About Autism Anyways?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Invisible disabilities speak to bigger challenges in the workplace because many of the features inherent in diagnosis may appear to be an attitude or behaviour problem rather than a disability. As a result, people living with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have the lowest employment rates among any disability groups in North America, even when controlling for impairment severity, household income and social demographics.

Learning Outcomes:
  • To clarify the workplace challenges that are specific to ASD
  • To provide strategies for effective disclosure for people with ASD
  • To provide tools for who work with individuals with ASD
