ProjectABLE Sweden Launch

The ABLE project will enhance the Employment potential for Job Seekers with an Autism Spectrum Condition through researching the needs of Employers.  Training resources will be developed and shared throughout Europe and as a result Employers will be better able to recruit and retain suitable Employees.

Using the Supported Employment Model successful “Job Matches” can be achieved – that will result in win-win situation for the Job Seekers and the Employers.

Previous research indicated that a key barrier to securing Employment was the lack of knowledge of Employers in relation to the characteristics of People with Autism and the workplace adjustments which may be necessary to achieve an inclusive workforce.  Project ABLE will enhance the recruitment potential for People with an Autism Spectrum Condition through providing knowledge and appropriate support.
