The Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) Career Links is a collaborative initiative between VCU and the Virginia Department of Rehabilitative Services (DRS). This project is examining: a) a longitudinal analysis of vocational rehabilitation (VR) service delivery and employment outcomes among DRS clients with ASD; b) the impact of intensive community-based work experiences on the employment outcomes of youth with ASD c) the postsecondary school participation and ultimate employment of college students with ASD; and d) the impact of personal digital assistants (PDAs) on the employment outcomes of individuals with ASD.
The primary target population for this research is persons with Autism Spectrum Disorders, with an emphasis on youth and young adults who are unemployed, under-employed or under-served in postsecondary education. Check out the Resources page at: http://www.vcu-autism.org/resources/index.cfm
