Pre-employment workshop for students with ASD: collaboration with Currey Ingram and Specialisterne

Posted by on Friday, December 22, 2017 in News.

Partnering with Currey Ingram Academy and drawing on the expertise of Specialisterne, we’re developing a high-school pre-employment workshop for teenagers on the spectrum.

Tentatively called Workforce Readiness and Preparation (WRAP) workshop for students with autism, this four-week course follows a similar development methodology the Specialisterne have used for assessing, training and integrating their autistic employees for years.

The first WRAP workshop will be at Currey Ingram Academy this coming June, and we hope to expand it into an annual event with a similar project for college-aged students in the coming years.
