Kelly Autism Program

Post Secondary Employment

KAP will support young adults in obtaining meaningful employment by assisting them as they explore a variety of career choices. When employment is secured, KAP staff will work with the participants on required job and social skills to maintain employment. If needed, the staff will provide job coaching. KAP staff provides training and support in ongoing life skills, such as bill payment, checking, and tax preparation.

Another dimension of the program addresses the needs of individuals who have not acquired employment and have left the educational system due to meeting the graduation requirement. The main goal is to become gainfully employed. This group works during the day on job applications and skill building as well as various other life skills

As previously outlined for the other programs, social and leisure activities will be scheduled as specified by the participants. As participants become more independent, parent involvement can disengage gradually, affording more freedom to the participant. KAP staff works to help all parties through these processes.
