Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

For transition-age young adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), employment represents a key component of participation. This presentation will report preliminary outcomes of a study using the SDCDM. We found that the SDCDM can have a positive impact on the career development of young adults with ASD. Specifically, participants saw gains in goal attainment, which moved them closer to their long-term employment goals.
