Turning Pointe Autism Career Connection

Turning Pointe Autism Foundation has partnered with Parents Alliance Employment Project to create Autism Career Connection.

This program focuses on teaching job readiness and employment skills, and training job seekers on the autism spectrum how to be gainfully and competitively employed. Participants will receive classroom-based instruction and training from Turning Pointe. Participants will also have community-based internships with the assistance and support of Parents Alliance.

Through this partnership, program participants will have access to a job coach to support them and their individual strengths and needs. Autism Career Connection has developed a curriculum to specifically target employment skills for job seekers on the spectrum, and has aligned lessons and assessments with the best practices model.
