Each month we highlight an AIDE Canada resource that ties into the work we do at Sinneave. Many students will be finishing high school or post-secondary programs over the next few months and are looking ahead to finding employment. In this webinar, participants will learn about the foundational steps to seek, secure, and maintain a job.
Beginning with pre-employment skills such as exploring interests, resume writing, and job searching, through to interview skills and other self-advocacy skills (like seeking supports, disclosure and more), participants will learn a variety of strategies to help autistic and neurodivergent individuals be successful in the workforce.

Increasing Employment Readiness
Sinneave offers a number of ways autistic and neurodiverse people can increase their employment readiness. We offer EmploymentWorks, a proven job training program that combines classroom instruction and hands-on job sampling in real workplace settings. The EmploymentWorks curriculum is also available online as a Self-paced e-Learning program that you can complete at your own pace and schedule from the comfort of your home.

For individuals who would rather work one-on-one, we also offer Launch + Skills, an individualized life skills coaching program designed to help autistic youth and young adults who are ready to pursue goals in employment, education or living independently in the community.
