Autism & Employment
A brief guide to successful employment
The Autism Centre for Research Employment (ACRE) focuses on conducting employment research and developing Profiling Assessment PA© services to improve the job opportunities of people on the Autism Spectrum without, or with mild, learning disabilities. The portal aims to introduce you, or the person you support, to the most relevant work issues you need to know about.
ACRE was founded in 2014 with a grant from the Department of Health: Autism Innovation to Dr Beatriz López (Department of Psychology, University of Portsmouth ).
