Description: In this webcast, the presenters discuss employees with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and tips for educating employers and colleagues. When introducing individuals with ASD to the workplace, oftentimes, we get questions from employers, supervisors, and colleagues on the best ways to interact with this individual and also just questions about autism in general. This presentation will give you a background on autism spectrum disorder and how it can present in the workplace, and the challenges that you may see in working with this individual and strategies for success.
