Share Your Employment Experiences with the World

ASF, Curtin University in Australia, Karolinska University in Sweden and Stony Brook University in NY are collaborating to craft a policy brief around employment for people with ASD.  We need your insights, advice, experiences and opinions to help shape policy options that will be shared with legislators.  There are different surveys for individuals with autism, family members, employers, service providers and researchers.  We want all perspectives.  Please click HERE to fill out the survey.  We look forward to sharing the results and the policy brief with you in the future.  Thank you to the International Society for Autism Research for its support of this project.
