SLES - School Leavers Employment Support
Orange Elephants Creative Minds provides individualised plans and programs that support year 12 students and school leavers with autism and comorbid disabilities prepare for employment.
We understand that for autistic individuals a hands on approach is cohesive to positive outcomes. What this looks like for each person is different. What it does not look like is sitting at a table with our staff being asked questions and made find answers. At the SLES level we provide activities for you to do whilst we have a chat and get to know you. We work together to build a program that focusses on your strengths and has positive outcomes for future employment.
