The Autistic Youth Pre-job Training Project – Self-learning CD-ROM
Heep Hong Society
To help teenagers with autism find employment, Heep Hong Society has produced “The Autistic Youth Pre-job Training Project – Self-learning CD-ROM”, which throws light on job-related problems often encountered by autistic people, such as interview skills, workplace demeanor, problem-solving skills, and financial management. Depicting how autistic people react in certain scenarios and sharing coping strategies offered by professionals, the CD-ROM is set to gird autistic youth up for employment. Sharing from parents, employers and autistic peers was also included to provide viewers with a wider perspective on autistic people. Under the Autistic Youth Pre-job Training Project, Heep Hong Society, in collaboration with MSIG Insurance (Hong Kong) Ltd., also published a booklet entitled “A Job Opportunity for Autistic Youth” to highlight the traits and qualities of autistic people especially their capability on working in order to let employers have a better understanding of their strengths. For free copies of both the self-learning CD-ROM and booklet, please contact Hoi Fu Centre at 2777 5588.
