The Specialisterne Australia team will be attending the Autism@Work Employment Fair and the Asia Pacific Autism Conference (APAC) in Sydney this September.
We are delighted to be attending the Autism@Work Employment Fair, presented by the Autism CRC and DXC Technology. This free event will provide people on the autism spectrum and their supporters an opportunity to meet with us and a number of employers and other employment providers. The Employment Fair will run from 3-5pm, and you can register for your free ticket and find out more information via this link. We look forward to seeing you there.
We will have a Specialisterne booth at APAC, which was kindly sponsored by ANZ. Please come and visit us and find out more about what we do and how we may be able to help. We look forward to seeing you there!
Jay Hobbs will be presenting with Professor Tony Attwood about the Thriving at Work program (concurrent session 2, 4.40-5.00pm). Dr. Michelle Garnett, Prof. Tony Attwood and Specialisterne have collaborated on this project to provide an effective transition to employment program. The program includes identifying employee strengths, identifying support needs and working with individuals on the autism spectrum to develop an ongoing support plan.
Bec Flower and Jason White will be giving a presentation about our current model at Specialisterne, and how we use alternative means to traditional recruitment to allow individuals to demonstrate their skills (concurrent session 1, 3.45-4.05pm).
