Careers and Jobs Support for Students with Autism and LD
All CIP students develop comprehensive employment skills through extensive training, counseling, community service, resume development, and internship and job placements.
Competitive jobs require employees with social skills, the ability to manage executive functioning tasks such as time management, organization, and independent living skills.
For those diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders and learning differences, the ability to obtain a competitive job that provides a living wage dictates the development of these competencies. CIP’s holistic and strength-based approach assists students in realizing and developing their place as citizens of the world.
