Building autism employment skills and knowledge
The Department of Social Services (DSS) Autism@Work Program is a pilot initiative between the DSS, the DXC’s Dandelion Program and Untapped. The DXC Dandelion Program has helped to create sustainable careers for over 120 people on the autism spectrum with Australian government and commercial organisations.
The DSS Autism@Work program is building from that foundation to enable Disability Employment Services (DES) providers to connect employers and autistic candidates to create the start of career journeys for more people on the autism spectrum.
Understanding more about autism
The characteristics of autism vary from person to person and can vary depending on different situations – which is why it is often described as a spectrum.
