A New Deal for Autism: The Emergence of Employment as a Civil Rights Issue

A Webcast with Dr. Michael Cameron, Ph.D., BCBA-D

CEUs: 2 (Type 2) CEUs for Board Certified Behavior Analysts

Fee: $25.00

Out of the entire population of people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) that are eligible to be employed, a total of 85% are jobless. Moreover, of the 15% of people with ASD that are on the payroll, nearly all are working part-time and engaged in vocational activity that lacks alignment with their strengths and interests. However, there are exemplars centered on equal opportunity employment within our culture. In consequence, the purpose of this webcast is to highlight an employment setting (Not Your Typical Deli or NYTD) that has: (1) excelled in the areas of hiring individuals with ASD; (2) aligned the work activity, of employees with ASD, with their personal strengths, interests, and skills; and (3) arranged full-time employment opportunities. This webcast features an interweaving of a review of behavioral science research findings centered on adults with ASD and employment, commentary from the NYTD employer, and the perspective of an employee with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Throughout this webcast, an emphasis is placed on how the basic principles of behavior analysis have been marshaled to ensure the vocational success of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
