The Challenge

Job interviews are tough. But they can be especially difficult for neurodiverse individuals who have social anxiety and communication styles that may make it difficult to “sell” oneself to another person. We also know that the neurodiverse community (including individuals on the autism spectrum) is at risk of critically high levels of unemployment. Therefore, it is critical to address obstacles that stop neurodiverse individuals from getting employed.

The Challenge

Starting with Strengths

Neurodiverse youth can suffer from severe low self-esteem. Unfortunately, many treatments can focus on trying to fix what an individual is doing wrong, without teaching someone what they are doing right. The KF-STRIDE training program does the opposite. We start with strengths to empower youth to recognize what skills and talents they bring to a place of employment.
