Online Training to Improve Job Coaches’ Support of Minimally Verbal and Nonverbal Adults With Autism Spectrum Disorder


This online training is part of a research study aiming to advance the field of job coaching by providing job coaches who work with adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) who are minimally verbal or nonverbal evidence-based practice strategies necessary for success. The training will be presented in a prerecorded, asynchronous fashion, allowing participants to engage in the activity at a location of their choice and in their time frame across two weeks. This training will focus on teaching job coach participants how to use the behavior skills training (BST) model to support their clients who use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). Specific content will include background information on job coaching adults with ASD, a detailed review of BST and the application of BST in employment, evidence-based practices for individuals with ASD, an overview of AAC strategies supporting successful employment, and a list of recognized resource agencies supporting work for adults with ASD. Participants will learn from case study presentations, visual supports, and video examples of the strategies embedded throughout the training. Participants will engage in self-directed learning check-in points, including questions guiding the content's application. Correct responses to all questions will be included to guarantee the information is presented in an error-free manner. This training is designed and created with content area experts' input and seeks to improve the knowledge base and feelings of self-confidence of job coaches across employment settings.
