STEP Registration STEP (Students Transitioning into Employment Program) Registration Please read the following information carefully before proceeding to the form.The STEP Program enables high school students who self-identify with Autism Spectrum Disorder to participate in targeted career development activities and exploration. With an individualized approach, students build self-awareness and skills through structured learning sessions and community mentorship placements with the ultimate goal of identifying appropriate employment or attending post-secondary choices upon school leaving. The STEP Program is suitable for students in Level 2 up to school leaving year. STEP is designed for students whose primary method of communication is verbal language; are comfortable working independently, or with minimal support; and are interested in exploring career options though work placements and/or attend post-secondary education. Whenever possible we encourage students to complete the registration themselves. Is your 2018/2019 ASNL Membership paid?
