Trainer Connections on Preparing Transition Age Youth with Autism for Employment

The Pennsylvania Department of Education, Bureau of Special Education (BSE)/PaTTAN in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, Philadelphia, and the SAP Corporation have developed a training program, “Preparing Transition Age Youth with Autism for Employment”, to better prepare students with autism for employment.

A series of instructional modules, based on a specific participant-centered pedagogical framework, has been developed and shared with attendees of the Train the Trainer Sessions held across the State of Pennsylvania October – December 2017. This session is designed to provide an opportunity for trainers to network, exchange information, and receive training on navigating the new Wiki Page. The implementation of agency/region trainings will also be discussed.


Participants will:

  • Explain the critical need for cross-stakeholder collaboration
  • Discuss the processes and/or modules that are working in the implementation of the two-day training materials
  • Identify needs for implementation and/or growth of curriculum use
  • Share ideas with fellow stakeholders may be of value for use in your agency/region
