About myWAY Employability

Almost one third of autistic people of working age are unemployed, and only 26% of autistic adults attain a post-school qualification from university or TAFE. These outcomes are far below those of non-autistic individuals. 

myWAY Employability supports young people on the autism spectrum to take control of their future and career planning, improving the likelihood of a successful shift to work or further education. 

Based on six years of research, trials and evaluation related to transition planning for young people on the autism spectrum, we know myWAY Employability can help to improve the self-determination of autistic young people to plan and prepare for their working life. We can’t wait to see myWAY Employability in the hands of young people all over Australia and internationally.
