Celebrating World Autism Awareness Day
On behalf of all of us at the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), we would like to wish you a wonderful World Autism Awareness Day. We encourage you to join us in recognizing the talents and skills of people on the autism spectrum both today and throughout National Autism Awareness Month in April.
In the spirit of raising awareness on how to better support individuals on the autism spectrum in the workplace, ODEP has provided a list of helpful resources and tools from our organization and from the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), one of our partners at the U.S. Department of Labor:
- OFCCP – Best Practices for Creating an Inclusive Workforce
- ODEP – Resources for Autism and the Workplace
- Job Accommodation Network (JAN) – Accommodations and Compliance: Autism Spectrum
- JAN – Workplace Accommodation Toolkit
We encourage you to share these resources with your colleagues. For more information on the work ODEP does, visit our website today.
