The Parent Experience

Improving Parent Outlooks on Employment Futures

The EmploymentWorks program is designed to improve the employment readiness and skills of youth and young adults on the autism spectrum. During its’ development, the evaluation team took the opportunity to learn more about how the programs affect the perceptions and hope for the future that parents have as their son or daughter begins their employment journey.

Over three quarters of the parents surveyed indicated that their outlook related to the employment future of their youth improved, and that they felt more hopeful.
