Psychology Colloquium Oct 11
This talk will discuss several research studies focusing on employment issues for those with developmental disabilities, including those with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Study 1 compares results of research examining employment expectations for adults with developmental disabilities to work expectations of case managers in a southern CA Regional Center. Study 2 examines job satisfaction and organizational commitment in a small sample of adults with ASD. Finally, Study 3 explores the potential utility of the U.S. Department of Labor's O*NET database as a tool for identifying appropriate jobs for those with ASD.
