I have been working with an autistic young man who loves the rock band Kiss and wants to work as a holiday entertainer hundreds of miles away from home. To date, he has struggled to appreciate that £92 per day is a bit too much to spend on train tickets and that he wouldn’t get employed to just sing Kiss songs. I have turned the situation into an opportunity to learn more about making informed decisions and employability skills, amongst other things.
As the resource was really effective in helping him to make informed decisions I felt I would share it. It also serves as a useful activity to look at skills matching, job searches, employability vocabulary and so on. I recommend editing the adverts to suit the interests and skills of different group members.
