In honor of the 75th Anniversary of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, the IWGA and Employment First Taskforce (EFTF) talk about autism, transition, and employment. IWGA and EFTF members are joined by autism advocate, Chloe Rothschild, who shares some of her own experience.
Families play a critical role in the lives of people with autism. In this webinar, the IWGA is joined by a panel of parents and state legislators to discuss how families can build relationships with elected officials, share their stories, and be effective partners in the policy-making process.
In honor of Autism Acceptance Month, the IWGA and EFTF join forces. We use LifeCourse Framework to focus on two “domains” – healthy living and community living - two keys areas as autistic youth transition to adulthood. Panelists share information and resources on health care, housing, and community engagement.
