Stars for Life Foundation for Autism provides services and support in the community for individuals over 18 years of age with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The goal is to provide young adults with daily living skills, continued education, supported housing, independent living skills, employment skills, and workplace opportunities.
They provide one-on-one support with resumé building, job seeking, mock interviews, and visiting workplaces to determine work placements.
With the clients’ unique challenges, it is important to find employers who can identify and make small changes needed to make the clients’ work experience successful. Education will help co-workers better understand this disorder. It will help them to go beyond the physical aspects to see the real person underneath.
