Young Adults Project (YAP) is an initiative at Kerry’s Place Autism Services which focuses on supporting adults 18 years or older with Autism Spectrum Disorder, who are looking to enter the workforce and retain meaningful employment. The Young Adults Project provides individualized support to adults with ASD at any point in their employment journey. The YAP participants work with an Autism Consultant to establish employment goals, attend small groups, connect with service providers, advocate for accommodations and maintain employment. All services have been adapted to be offered virtually using Zoom.
