The purpose of this study was to investigate the differences in clinical syntomatology between two groups of adults with autism who participated in two modalities of employment: supported vs sheltered. This study was part of a larger study designed to analyze the variables that predict the success of people with autism in employment settings. The results suggested that a possible relationship existed between clinical evolution of people with autism and modality of employment. Specifically, the sheltered group scored higher than the supported group in total CARS scores in 1999, and the total score of the sheltered group in 1999 was higher than total score in 1996 for the same group. The total score of the supported group, on the other hand, was the same in 1996 and 1999.
