 Preparing for an Interview

Is your child looking for a job? Sometimes it is hard for people with Autism to go through the interview process. One way we can assist with that, is to practice and prepare for the questions that might be asked. When a child or adult feels confident, he or she might feel more comfortable in the process. HANDS in Autism has some forms that might help. Whats The Dress Code could help with how to dress for the interview.  Prepare for the Interview could help your child with what questions might be asked. Going over these questions and having answers prepared might help the person feel confident in answering questions for the real interview.
