JobTips: An employment preparation program for adolescents and young adults with ASD  

This project would provide a motivating and effective new employment intervention program called JobTips to help adolescents and young adults with autism evaluate job requirements and learn appropriate skills necessary to obtain and maintain employment. Internet delivery will enhance and extend support services to the home, school, and remote locations. In addition to contributing an innovative intervention tool, the research conducted through this project will advance scientific knowledge regarding the use of multimedia tools for treatment in social and learning disorders and promote greater understanding of behavior intervention strategies for individuals with autism.
