The purpose of ISAW is to support Business Service Teams in their understanding of issues relevant to autism and employment. Through in-person trainings, online modules, and ongoing supports, we hope to increase employment for workers on the autism spectrum. All trainings and modules are being developed by Bev Harp, whose understanding of autism derives from personal experience as an autistic worker as well as from peer reviewed literature and experience gained through working with other autistic adults. The work is being overseen by a subcommittee of the Kentucky Advisory Council on Autism.
