Format: Virtual

Stanford Neurodiversity Job Fair & Reverse Job Fair is part of Stanford University Research on Neurodiversity at Work.

We are interested in examining the effects of specialized employment support programs for adults with autism. To do this, we have designed a research study where we ask participants to complete different assessments such as cognitive assessments, IQ testing, and other questionnaires to learn more about the individuals participating. We will also provide different program options to those who participate in the research to see how effective the programs are for improving overall outcomes of individuals with autism. One of those programs is called the Neurodiversity at Work (NaW) program. The objectives of the NaW program are:

(i) to cultivate the concept of the strengths-based model of neurodiversity in organizations,

(ii) to empower managers and teams with skills to work with neurodiverse individuals,

(iii) to increase job readiness for neurodiverse individuals, and

(iv) to support both employers and neurodiverse employees throughout the entire employment cycle. 

Because we are studying the effects of the NaW program on adults with autism and the Stanford Neurodiversity Job Fair/Reverse Job Fair is part of the NaW program, all those who participate in this Job Fair will also be participating in our research study. If you do not want to participate in the research, we can provide you with other resources but you will not be able to participate in the NaW program. You will receive more information about the research study to help you decide if you want to participate in the research. Participants will be involved in the study before and after onboarding. Duration of job search phase is approximately o to 12 months.  After onboarding, participants will be followed for approximately 18 months.
