Work Behaviours Training

Young adults with autism, who are otherwise independent and function well, often have difficulties in understanding and coping with the dynamics of a work environment. They may require additional assistance in order to find, as well as retain, a job.

To facilitate the learning of skills needed in open work environments, we provide adults with autism with an opportunity to train ‘on the job’ with us at AFA.

* Depending on the functional skills of the young adult, he /she is assigned a job profile.

* AFA simulates work settings to provide training in work behaviours.

* The programme includes aspects faced in the open work environments such as coping with unpredictable changes and developing interpersonal skills with colleagues.
