    Monday, August 17, from 2:00 to 3:30 PM US ET

    Today, 35% of individuals on the autism spectrum attend college,1 yet an estimated 80 – 85% are under- or unemployed! This Webinar offers practical strategies for guiding these students/clients to a manageable job or career. You will learn:

                   ▪ Four steps to finding the right job match
