Exploring avenues of entering employment

Today both Garry and I contacted Blue Jay. Blue Jay Foundation supports paid work experience for people with Asperger's Syndrome. We are involved in Autism Advocacy and are especially interested in gaining meaningful employment for those who are on the Autism Spectrum.

In our Autism Advocacy work we focus on the abilities and strengths as we believe that these out-way the difficulties that Aspies face. We are currently investigating options and opportunities to find suitable employment for Aspies that are looking and willing to work.

Other ways we are looking to assist other Aspies in the social group that I am involved in include providing access to reliable and accurate information that will assist Aspies that are looking for work. We also want to assist Aspies in the interview process and we intend to provide them with interview training sessions, and self esteem raising exercises. We believe that it is important to hone in on these skills to increase the chances of Adults gaining employment and this will in turn  increase their quality of life both financially and socially.
