The Together We Can Manage project aimed to develop best practices in employment for autistic people in the Czech Republic.
- Evaluating existing employment strategies for autistic people across Europe;
- Developing the best experience for employment of autistic people in the Czech Republic;
- Sharing information and good practices with other autism organisations across Europe.
The project involved autistic people, politicians, government representatives and employers in the process of creating a policy for the development of supportive employment opportunities for autistic people in the Czech Republic, which were presented to policy-makers and legislators.
Autism-Europe supported this three-year project, which was funded by the European Social Fund in the Czech Republic.
In June 2013, Autism-Europe Vice-President and self-advocate Pietro Cirrincione gave a presentation in Prague about the situation of autistic people in Italy. Titled ‘Employment support in Italy’, the presentation gave an overview of the employment barriers for autistic people in Italy, and was focused on the areas of diagnosis, public and self-awareness, legislation, and services.
