2019 World Autism Day: Resource Sharing for Education and Employment

Today is World Autism Day!  In support of inclusion of persons with autism in the workplace, I want to share the following two resources to help adult educators advocate and educate for understanding the needs of persons with autism, and providing workplace accommodations, as needed.
