©2015 By Michelle Rigler, Amy Rutherford, and Emily Quinn.
The BASICS College Curriculum presents a hands-on approach to learning essential independence and life skills for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This book helps young adults to translate their strengths and interests into possible careers and develop job-hunting skills that will set them on the road to success.
Students are shown how to identify their unique skill set, write an effective resume, build a network of contacts, prepare for interviews, and secure that internship position. Other possible life paths are also explored including continuing in education and studying abroad. Ideal as a textbook for college programs run by disability support services and suitable for young adults to use for their own self-study, each lesson provides valuable information and advice, useful diagrams, practical exercises and workbook components that can be filled in at home or in class, and self-assessment tools.
