Transitioning Youth with Disabilities and Employment – TYDE

The TYDE Project is bringing together community partners, researchers and self-advocates from across BC to work together to improve the employment outcomes of transitioning youth with intellectual disabilities (ID) and/or autism spectrum disorder (ASD).  Research shows employment to be a critical social determinant of health – affecting both physical and mental health. In Canada working age individuals with ID and/or ASD represent the most unemployed and underemployed citizens in Canada. You can learn about the work that the TYDE team have underway to foster the inclusion and citizenship of youth with disabilities transitioning from high school to adult life in their first newsletter.
