New program supports neurodiverse young people to become job-ready

By Staff Writers, 7 December 2021 , Comments

Life After School supports young people who are ineligible for funding or who don’t have an NDIS plan to build the skills necessary to access the workforce.

The program is designed for young people living with learning difficulties who are preparing to leave school, or have left school in the last five years and are looking for employment. It’s aimed at individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Dyslexia and other social and emotional challenges. During the program, they will have the opportunity to access coaching, mentoring and work experience opportunities that will enable them to get ready for the future of work.

Neurodiverse young people, their families and support networks have played an important role in the design of Life After School. They have helped identify the challenges faced by young adults and their families after leaving school. Life After School will empower these young people to have a successful transition to work after school.
