Many people with autism are not getting the assistance they’re entitled to from a government program that’s supposed to help individuals with disabilities land jobs.
Access to services through vocational rehabilitation varies dramatically from one state to the next, according to a study published recently in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders.
The vocational rehabilitation program is paid for jointly through federal and state funds and offers individuals with disabilities help exploring job opportunities and finding work in addition to support once they are employed.
