ACRE believes people with autistic spectrum conditions are gifted and have a right to contribute to our society. The centre carries out research into employment for people with autism, and provides services for both individuals and employers.
ACRE offers a comprehensive assessment service to people with ASD in employment or actively seeking employment. The assessment covers different areas as Career Interests, Employability Skills, Executive functioning, Sensory Sensitivities and Social and Communication skills. The assessment tools have been developed by the ACE team specifically for work settings. The Individual Employment Profile report resulting from the assessment process offers information about the individual profile of the person with ASD and also offers specific recommendations to employers regarding strengths and adaptations in the work place needed.
ACRE provides person-centred training to employers with the aim to create a supportive and productive working environment, and help to overcome any potential challenges that may arise in the initial stages of employment.
