aspergers employment sitesAspergers Employment Sites

There’s not a lot of internet information available about aspergers employment sites.  After some extensive internet searching, here are four great sites I found.  Bookmark these sites for help with your Aspergers employment questions.

ASTEP 

The Asperger Syndrome Training and Employment Partnership promotes inclusion for people with high functioning autism and Aspergers syndrome through:

  • Awareness and training campaigns aimed at Fortune 1000 companies;
  • Establishing relationships between high quality support programs for adults with Asperger’s throughout the US and national employers;
  • And, developing Corporate Partners to implement integrated employment programs for adults with Asperger Syndrome.

While this site doesn’t provide career coaching, it has a great resource page for people seeking employment.

The Assistance for Individuals page links people to vocational rehabilitation services in their particular state within the United States.

They also provide links to suggested reading, job search tools, and job search websites.

Forward Motion Coaching   

Barbara Bissonnette the author of the Aspergers Syndrome Workplace Survival Guide and The Complete Guide to Getting a Job for People with Asperger’s Syndrome,.

Prior to coaching Barbara spent more than 20 years in business, most recently as Vice President of Marketing and Sales for an information services firm. In addition to first-hand experience hiring and managing people at all levels, she understands the challenges of Asperger’s and NLD and focuses on practical strategies for employment success. 

By signing up for her newsletter, you can get a free copy of Getting Hired: A Primer for Individuals with Asperger’s Syndrome & NLD  

Overview of Some of the Adult Disability Services for People with Autism
