AUTISM CANTECH - ENGAGING YOUTH AGES 18-30 WITH EMPLOYABILITY PART 2


Event Date: 
Tuesday, January 25, 2022 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm
Part 2 of an ongoing series that talks about the Autism Cantech! program how it supports sustainable employment for Autistic Individuals.

About this event

As part of the Autism CanTech! program, participants who enter into a paid work experience are supported by a new assistive technology known as RoboCoach, developed by Edmonton’s own Technology North. RoboCoach looks to support not only the participant, but also the employer as they work together and build better communication and processes for task management.

In this one-hour session, you’ll learn about Autism CanTech! supports, and meet Technology North CEO Ling Huang, himself a parent of an Autistic youth, and learn the story of how and why RoboCoach was developed, and how it works to create a sustainable employment environment for Autistic individuals.

Please register in advance to attend.
