This part will take place in several phases, in which we will develop new learning approaches for teaching and employing people with autism. Based on the data from the research on the prevalence of people with autism, on the basis of the analysis of the needs of workers in education and the needs of employers we will create a new model of support. This model will be intended for professionals working in schools, employers, and also employees at the Employment Agency of the Republic of Slovenia.
This model will be presented to all the mentioned groups through seminars of workshops.
We will also test the new learning approaches in practice in the field, where some of the participants, who will first participate in the seminars, will be additionally trained. Then they can transfer their knowledge to other employees in their organization. We will collect theoretical starting points and practical experiences and present them in a manual for everyone who meets people with autism (educational professionals, employers, employees of the Employment Agency of the Republic of Slovenia and others).
The main aim of this part is to provide new knowledge for better competencies in teaching and training people with autism using a new model of support for school professionals. We want to establish a safe, creative, open, interactive, innovative, and stimulating learning environment for people with autism. Our aim is also to modernize teaching approaches and learning of people with autism, which will indirectly influence their better social inclusion. By training employers and employees at the Employment Agency of the Republic of Slovenia, we will improve the employment conditions for people with autism. An important aim is also to ensure permanent information about new teaching and learning practices for the employment, work, and life of people with autism to be collected in the manual.
