Abstract

Date Presented 03/29/20

This pilot study evaluated the effectiveness of Project FUSE, a collaborative program exposing students to trade skills in a supportive and inclusive environment. Findings suggest Project FUSE is a promising program for the development of preemployment skills and independent-living abilities in adolescents with autism. Basic social processes were achieved within a therapeutic group environment.
