Pathways to Employment for Transition Aged Youth with ASD
Keynote Address Presented by Dr. Carol Schall
Achieving competitive, community-based employment continues to be a challenge facing young adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Nevertheless, there have been some studies that demonstrate successful supports for individuals with ASD. In this session, Carol Schall, Ph.D. will present research on the impact of internships, supported employment and customized employment on employment outcomes. She will also include an in-depth discussion of the behavioral methods used to support youth and young adults with ASD in the transition from school to work.

The one day conference will include breakout sessions, a panel of youth and young adults on the autism spectrum, and a resource hall. Please join us in Wausau this fall to build your capacity to support youth transitioning to adulthood.
