Douglas & Therese Erdman Work Skills Program A Project of Institute for Well-Being

Give Adults with Autism the Power to Succeed

Adults with autism are passionate about working. But they face many challenges and are exceptionally underemployed, even compared to people with other types of disabilities. The Hussman Center for Adults with Autism is making work a priority as it pairs these adults with Towson University students in addressing “ready for work" skills. The adults with autism benefit from these programs while giving our students unparalleled insight into the supports that influence work success.

How Can You Help?

Your gift to the Erdman Work Skills Program allows us to substantially expand and systematically evaluate our work exploration programs so Towson's programs can serve as models for other work-related programs. Your gift also will support valuable communication and social programs that help adults with autism prepare for life in the working world. Plus, you will help us share our findings locally and nationally to make the world a better, more inclusive place for growing numbers of adults with autism.
