Practicing Inclusion in the Museum Workplace

on Wed, 08/28/2013 - 4:48am

The Museum Access Consortium is currently planning a fall workshop that will explore steps museums can take to provide opportunities in life skills and job skills development for adults with autism spectrum disorder. This programming is in response to two separate workshops hosted earlier this year by the Museum Access Consortium. Panelists from GRASP and parents of children with autism from the National Autism Association - NY Metro Chapter both expressed a need for cultural institutions to explore options for providing opportunities in the workplace for individuals on the autism spectrum.
