Employment Training Program for Adults with Autism
Eden Autism Services operates employment training centers in New Jersey where adults with autism are taught valuable skills that will help them to be productive and effective in the workplace. At each of the centers, Eden provides center-based, supportive and competitive employment.
- Center-based employment – participants remain in an Eden Center and primarily work on sub-contract mailing or assembly projects.
- Supported Employment – participants work out in the community under the supervision of an Eden job coach. Jobs include working in a convenience store, cleaning services, data entry, etc.
