This project will help to create a curriculum for training students with ASD and in data management curricula and in the social communication skills needed in data environments. The curriculum will be inclusive of real-work samples, with peer leader instruction videos and a social communication skill training that relates to office environments. This training package will enable students with ASD in high school (and adults in the community) to learn data management skills, practice Process Execution technical skills and social communication skill in preparation for employment. They will be able to compete for positions in this field based on their training experience.
