After over a year of research, ACT is publishing The Guide to Employment for Teens and Adults with Autism in B.C. The guide provides teens and adults with autism, and their families, with details of B.C.’s employment services, both public and privately funded. The guide also has much that is relevant to other special needs. It can be found on the ACT website as Chapter 12 in ACT’s Autism Manual for B.C. Funding for this guide was made possible by a grant from Autism Speaks Canada.
Increasingly the need for employment is being recognized as crucial to ensuring quality of life for people with disabilities. The provincial government declared September as Disability Employment Month in B.C.
