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.
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.
