National Disability Employment Awareness Month – October 2020 Toolkit

The Autism Society of America is proud to recognize October 2020 as the 75th-anniversary celebration of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, as well as the final push toward voting registration and election information before the November 3 Election.

Our October 2020 Toolkit focuses on the continuation of our voter registration campaign, as well as providing relevant, practical resources for professionals and advocates to assist in finding employment opportunities for individuals on the autism spectrum. This month, we hope to provide the autism community with the resources necessary to navigate both employment and the 2020 Election in the wake of COVID-19.
