In celebration of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, OAR teamed up with Danny Combs, president and founder of Teaching the Autism Community Trades (TACT), to deliver a free webinar event on October 8. During “Autism and the Skilled Trades,” Combs discussed critical topics such as how to help organizations find community partners and scaffold their training to set up students/clients for success. More than 280 attendees also learned how to assess the skills and talents of individuals with autism to find legitimate careers and employment opportunities around those abilities.
