Description

– Preparing for Obtaining a Job and Coping in the Workplace

This game is designed as a resource to help young people learn to understand and prepare for work experience, job-seeking, interviews and coping in the workplace. In particular young people with a diagnosis on the Autism Spectrum find interviews difficult in the same way as they may struggle with day-to-day conversations.

Many of the elements of the interactions are similar:

  • Greeting appropriately
  • Making eye contact
  • Using appropriate facial expression
  • Listening carefully
  • Asking good questions
  • Requesting clarification, etc.

This fun discussion card-based activity encourages participants to:

  • Answer questions
  • Appraise themselves
  • Decide whether advice suggested is good or bad
  • Role-play situations and interactions using hypothetical scenarios.

There are 74 cards and the game can be played by any number of people, although 4-6 is recommended. It is suitable for people of age 15+.

 – Intended for use in educational settings and/or therapy contexts under the supervision of an adult. This is not a toy.
