JobTIPS

The best resource we have found if you are on the spectrum and looking for work is JobTIPSa free online program that helps people on the Asperger's Spectrum explore career interests, seek employment, and successfully maintain employment. The website provides tools to assess work interests and locate jobs. There are loads of printable documents, assessment tools, and videos. You can go to the JobTIPS website using this link.

A great resource on Employment is available from the University of MO:

 

dps.missouri.edu/Autism/AutismFactSheet2011.pdf

 

The pdf is a ten page long study of AS employment that was prepared for a March 6th & 7th 2012 conference to be held in St. Louis. It contains many helpful links.
