Programs unique to the Fayetteville area include:

JobTIPS Vocational Group
ASNC has received a grant that will enable us to offer JobTIPS training free of charge to a group of adults on the autism spectrum seeking to explore career opportunities and develop work skills. The group will begin meeting in July and meet once a week and follows the JobTIPS curriculum developed by Do2Learn. The program will begin once we receive interest from 3 individuals. Meetings will be every Wednesday from 10:00-11:30 a.m.

Participants explore and learn how their skills, personality, and interests compare with career opportunities. Members also practice key skills, including interviewing, completing an application, using key phrases, developing a resume, and maintaining employment.
