On April 1 (no fooling!) the AASCEND Job Club tackles accommodations. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 requires employers to make reasonable accommodations in the workplace for workers with developmental differences, including autism and related conditions. At the April 1 Job Club meeting we will discuss who is covered by the requirement, what are examples of reasonable accommodations, and best practices for requesting such accommodations. The discussion will be led by Job Club facilitators Dan Middleton and Keith Halperin. Attendees are encouraged to bring examples of reasonable accommodations they have obtained or are interested in obtaining.
The Zoom meeting URL and password will be sent to people on our email list as the date approaches. If you are not on our email list, click here to sign up. No registration is necessary.
In the second half of the meeting there will be opportunity to role-play with Dan and Keith, in requesting accommodations. As usual at AASCEND meetings, attendees on the autism spectrum will offer their experience and perspectives throughout the program.
Who: Adults on the autism spectrum, families, mentors and professionals all welcome. For more information, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
When: Sat Apr 1, 10am – 11am (approx.)
Where: Online via Zoom. URL and password will be emailed.
