‘The Autism West Symposium aims to empower people on the spectrum through showcasing inspirational speakers (some with lived experience), featuring people, organisations and thought leaders doing amazing work in the community. ‘ Specialisterne are proud to be represented at the Autism West Symposium by our Assessment & Support Manager Jay Hobbs.
Jay will also discuss some of the typical challenges autistic individuals face in finding and keeping employment. A number of practical strategies will be explained that may help individuals managing the transition from education to employment, find suitable employment options and sell their individual skills to employers. The ‘Thriving at work’ program which has been developed in collaboration with Dr. Michelle Garnett and Prof Tony Attwood will be outlined as a resource that can be used to prepare for or maintain a meaningful career.
