  • 2017 Autism & Public Health Lecture

    Tuesday, March 28, 2017

    9:00 AM-11:00 AM

    Behrakis Grand Hall 3210 Chestnut Street Philadelphia, PA 19104

    • Everyone

    David Nicholas, PhD, RSW, associate professor in the faculty of Social Work at the University of Calgary in Canada, will present “Building a Career: Emerging Considerations for a Nurturing 'Ecosystem' in Employment and Autism”.

    The employment rate among adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) remains low. Employment support services are increasingly linked to the potential for favorable job outcomes, yet relatively little is known about employment support practices and outcomes. This presentation offers perspectives emerging from a Canadian study examining ASD employment support resources. These, and other, findings recommend an ecosystem model in which intersecting elements of individual job readiness and support are linked with broader community support access, family engagement and employer/co-worker capacity building. Dr. Nicholas will elaborate on this approach and its application in practice adding recommendations for community-based application, policy development and research advancement.

    David Nicholas, PhD, RSW, is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Social Work at the University of Calgary in Canada, and is cross-appointed to the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Alberta. His research addresses vocational and transitional issues in developmental disability, quality of life, and family support, with a particular focus on persons with ASD. Dr. Nicholas has offered national leadership in advancing employment opportunities for youth and adults with ASD.

    This event is free and open to the public. Registration is requested but not required.
