Default 'Agricultural specialisterne': rural employment revolution for those with Autism

The subject of recent posts has been on Autism-related events and organisations in the Akron metropolitan area of Ohio.

To the east, the Potential Development Program is a Mahoning County, Ohio-based nonprofit that has a mission to provide children with autism and special needs a safe and structured educational environment with caring, supportive services that give students the necessary skills and independence to lead productive lives. The Potential Development Preschool Program is an early childhood special education center that focuses on working with children ages 2 1/2 - 6 years-old who have various challenges, including Autism Spectrum Disorders...
Quote:
Children with autism and other developmental disabilities got a chance to experience a variety of local discoveries at a summer camp this week.

The students... participated in the third annual Camp FRIEND -- Finding Rewards In Every New Day.

The camp, which began Monday, runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Rich Center for Autism. It ends Friday.

The students spent time at

OH WOW! The Roger & Gloria Jones Children's Center for Science & Technology, walked through the Butler Institute of American Art Museum...

The camp is a collaboration with the Autism Society of Mahoning Valley Office, the Rich Center and the Potential Development Program.

Robin Suzelis, Autism Society board president and camp coordinator, said the biggest goal is to help introduce students to new places and let them explore.

"They need to be out, they need to be exposed to new things," she said. "They need to know that kids like them, that they can play with or just to be around so that they don't feel so different."

The camp provides an inclusive experience for students, not only within the autism spectrum, but other [challenges as well.]

As a parent of a 5- and 10-year-old with autism, Suzelis said the support she gives her children results in improved behavior and social skills.

...In addition to the exploring the community, campers also enjoy activities ...such as swimming, cooking and gardening.

The staff consists of 14 special-education teachers from the center, two full-time volunteers and four part-time volunteers.

Ali Lessick, lead instructions analyst volunteer for the camp and instructions specialist at the center, looks after the 3 to 5 age group. Lessick said the support she provides is invaluable to students.

"With this age group, their minds are so fresh, and they have so much to learn," she said. "So it's important for us to really plan important structures and effective activities."

Suzelis said Youngstown has a great need for the camp because students have little to no structured programs in the summer.

Rachel Dobson, the camp director and behavioral analyst at the center, organized the camp's schedules, with volunteers and teachers and supervising the campers. Since the first year, Dobson said both parents and children have loved the camp and always look forward to its return.

Due to some of their behavioral conditions, many families can't send their children to typical camps. Suzelis hopes the camp can start earlier next summer to avoid the start of the school year and to accept more students, depending on staffing.

Default 'Agricultural specialisterne': rural employment revolution for those with Autism

The subject of recent posts has mainly been on Autism-related events and organisations in Northeast Ohio.

The Autism Society of Mahoning Valley is a Youngstown, Ohio-based nonprofit that aims to work to improve the quality of life for those individuals, including children, living with Autism Spectrum Disorders. It serves Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties...
Quote:
The Southern Park Mall hosted the Second Annual Autism and Disability Awareness Fair on March 21. Parents and children came to the fair to get information, share information and to merely have their children come and play – activities were provided by The Autism Society.

Jen Gonda, a staff member of The Autism Society, said they had a huge turnout throughout the day of inquiring people and those wishing to help and get help. This fair was a kickoff event for April, Autism Awareness Month.

“We didn’t feel like we had a place for everyone to come together and connect,” Gonda said. “So that’s how this idea came together... We wanted to get our information out to as many people as possible.”

Aundrea Cika, director of the Mahoning Valley Autism Society, said this was a source that everyone seeking more information could come to, it wasn’t just limited to a certain people.

...Cika went on to say that there is so much misinformation out there now due to sharing of personal stories, websites dedicated to help others and purely situational data that just doesn’t suit everyone with a child who has a disability – the organization was started to help those searching for answers find them.

...The Autism Society has staff with a goal to better decipher accurate information from the inaccurate and disseminate the accurate information as efficiently as possible to mass amounts of people.

Default 'Agricultural specialisterne': rural employment revolution for those with Autism

The subject of recent posts has mainly been on Autism-related events and organisations in the state of Ohio.

The Children's Center for Developmental Enrichment (CCDE) is a Westerville, Ohio-based nonprofit whose services, through its school Oakstone Academy, include early intervention services for children from birth to age 3. The Oakstone Academy was founded on the principle of providing a truly inclusive environment for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, allowing them to be full participants in the classroom with peers who do not have disabilities...
Quote:
The city of Westerville is home to one of the few schools in the U.S. founded on the principle of providing a truly inclusive environment for children with autism spectrum disorders...
Oakstone Academy, located on South State Street, has created a school where students with autism are full participants in the classroom with peers who do not have disabilities.

[At least] three families of children with [Autism Spectrum Disorders] ...founded the Children's Center for Developmental Enrichment (CCDE) in 1999. CCDE's goal was to develop an educational model based on the inclusion of students with [Autism Spectrum Disorders] and their typically developing peers.

CCDE opened its doors to students in 2000, and opened Oakstone Academy, named for the street on which the first building was located, in 2002. This year, Oakstone Academy graduated its seventh senior class.

The process of starting a school from scratch, especially one based on a new education model, is no easy task. The education model Oakstone uses is called Social Immersion.

...Social Immersion classrooms consist of 18-20 children, two teachers and an assistant. Usually, seven or eight of the students in a classroom have [Autism Spectrum Disorders]. Students can apply for enrollment in Oakstone Academy as early as preschool, and the school touts that about 80 percent of the students who begin there as preschoolers thrive in the Social Immersion model.

Oakstone Academy draws students from all over the Columbus area -- 18 local school districts in the 2016-17 school year -- with some traveling from as far as Marysville, Newark and Mt. Gilead on a daily basis. There are even families moving to central Ohio from across the U.S. to attend the school.

...Oakstone Academy refers to its neurotypical students without [Autism Spectrum Disorders] as 'peers,' and this group of students is an important part of the school's success.

This past year, Oakstone Academy served 550 children across all grades, and 280 of those children have [Autism Spectrum Disorders]. Students at Oakstone have many opportunities available to them through the school.

...Starting in fifth grade, students may participate in theater, and boys' basketball and girls' volleyball are available beginning in sixth grade in addition to clubs for ultimate Frisbee, running and bowling. High school boys and girls may run cross country and join the swim team, and the boys can also choose basketball, while girls can play volleyball...

Oakstone Academy is also very focused on character education and student leadership as principles of the Social Immersion model, and there are programs that students can participate in beginning in middle school to help further themselves in these areas...
Here is a link to a video from Oakstone's spring concert from last year, featuring children from kindergarten age singing Oakstone's song: https://www.facebook.com/31851929746...3853305742468/

Ah. Okay. I read through a few pages expecting something about using pheromones as a treatment for autism.

Default 'Agricultural specialisterne': rural employment revolution for those with Autism

The subject of recent posts has been on Autism-related events and organisations in the state of Ohio.

To the west of the United States, Microsoft's Redmond campus, its corporate headquarters, is located at One Microsoft Way in Redmond, Washington. Its 'Autism Hiring Program' at Microsoft is part of its Inclusive Hiring initiative...
Quote:
For technology to truly help people achieve their potential, it has to be able to help everyone. And the people creating that technology must reflect the people who will use it.

..."By having people with disabilities in the fabric of our company, [we're] building in a diverse workforce that then represents the [many] people with disabilities out there," said [Jenny] Lay-Flurrie, Microsoft's chief accessibility officer. "We're going to be building better products, better services, websites..."
That spectrum includes many types of people who have talent and passion and who can help change the world. People like Joey Chemis, who came to work at Microsoft through the company's program to recruit and hire people with autism, a program that started two years ago.
Researchers estimate the unemployment and underemployment rates for people on the autism spectrum are 70-90 percent. That was the frustrating reality for Chemis: he had advanced skills in math and was excited to put them to use, but he couldn't get interviews. While he was working minimum-wage jobs, he knew he was 'destined for something more.'
To connect with candidates like Chemis, recruiters first focus on the 'front door,' explains Jen Guadagno, senior inclusive hiring program manager. Standard recruiting practices are not always accommodating for people on the autism spectrum. Recruiters receive training and guidance on how to best engage and interact with people based on their communication styles. For example, a candidate might have a tendency to answer questions exactly and succinctly, so learning to drive the conversation deeper and ask more questions is important for the employees and hiring managers who conduct the interviews.
Through Microsoft's efforts to hire employees on the autism spectrum, recruiters and hiring managers also put an emphasis on looking at a candidate's background holistically. For instance, someone might have advanced degrees but be working at a big-box store. "Because of that, there might be this perception of why someone doesn't have a job in their field," Guadagno said. To better assess experience, recruiters also look at technical projects and relevant volunteer work. "Just because you're not working in your desired career, it doesn't eliminate you."

Once the candidate is invited to a hiring event, a process that includes team-building exercises and mock interviews with feedback helps them feel supported. A technical skills assessment ?helps to drive more insight into someone?s skills and experience and puts more focus on their ability to do the job,? Guadagno said.
The program is part of Microsoft?s broader inclusive hiring for people with disabilities.
Being inclusive means support like interview accommodations based on people?s needs and educating interviewing teams on disabilities and etiquette. ?We want to set a candidate up for the best possible experience to showcase their skills,? Guadagno said.

...Being inclusive not only reflects our culture and our mission of empowerment, but it also makes good business sense, says Lay-Flurrie.
"A diverse and talented workforce brings new perspectives that help advance our ability to delight all of our customers," she said.

Messages of inclusion appear around Microsoft's Redmond campus.

From the beginning of his interview process, soon after the program was launched, Chemis felt that people at Microsoft were really interested in getting to know his strengths and passions. "You played with a bunch of tools. You had an assignment where you had to demonstrate your coding skills . . . you had some informal interviews called chats to figure out if you'd be a fit for the company." The process allows people with autism to "shine and show their true colors and abilities," he said.
Chemis still feels the same commitment today that he felt during his interviews, from the work he now does talking to new recruits going through the program to the way the Redmond campus regularly reminds him of how Microsoft supports employees. "I love the fact that it's an inclusive culture and that inclusion is written all over the elevators and all over the walls," he said. "You're going to come here, you're going to try things, you're going to experiment. Some of the experiments won't work out, but it's OK because the end goal is for you to learn and develop and make great stuff."
If Chemis could somehow go back and advise his younger self about the future, he says that he would say this: "You're going to do really cool things. You're going to end up getting a really cool job at Microsoft."
Here is a link to a video on the Program:
