The Course

What is EmploymentWorks Online?

EmploymentWorks Online is a program for individuals who enjoy the flexibility and convenience of learning at their own pace and schedule. The online format and user friendly design makes the program highly accessible by removing barriers to participation related to location, transportation, or fixed program schedules. To participate, all that is required is access to a computer or tablet, and a reliable internet connection. The program transforms the EmploymentWorks curriculum into a highly engaging learning experience, jam packed with interactive features, tools and resources, and offers a new way for autistic youth, adults and persons with disabilities to prepare for, find and keep jobs.

During the program, individuals can connect with program facilitators as needed to ask questions, discuss program content, and receive optional 1:1 job seeking support. When employment is gained during the program, on-the job supports are available to support integration into the workforce, such as equipment to perform job tasks, job coaching, and a wage subsidy that can be used by employers to help cover onboarding and training costs. Other program benefits include access to on-demand mental health resources and supports, and a unique communication tool to connect with program facilitators.
