April 2019 Oakville CentreGain and Maintain: Learning Differences and Employment

How do you gain and keep up employment for students and young adults with intellectual disabilities and other learning differences, such as autism, dyslexia or ADHD?

The main issue for youth and young adults with learning differences—and for their parents, educators and professionals working with them—is how to cut higher unemployment rates and aid this growing population in gaining and maintaining employment.

Michael McManmon, founder of CIP Worldwide—a Career Internship Program—has accumulated a wealth of experience and practical knowledge. After 45 years of experience working with these young people, 17 years ago he was diagnosed with Asperger’s .

Based on his latest publication “M•PLOY”—a workbook on skills and curriculum for transitioning young adults to college, independent living and employment—Dr McManmon will share steps, helpful real-life stories, and skill building exercises that help un-employed or under-employed youth and young adults, parents, job coaches, teachers and professionals to help them gain employment.

Learn about finding a social, sensory, emotional, intellectual fit and how to look for the right employment that matches an individual’s profile.

See the eight main skills that employers look for:

  1. communication
  2. teamwork
  3. problem solving and critical thinking
  4. initiative and leadership
  5. planning and organizing
  6. self-management

A Q&A follows where Dr McManmon will address each concern and share the skills needed to get teens and young adults out of the house and into employment after graduation.

Presented by Autism Job Club, Autism Lifepath, The Oakville Centre, Oakville Public Library, A Different Drummer Books.

Shrek The Musical

Suitable for ages 4 and up

Performances from Wednesday, April 10th to April 13th at 7:30 PM.
Matinee performance on April 13th an 14th at 2:00 PM

Shrek the Musical is a play for all ages focussing on universal acceptance of others in spite of appearances and first impressions.

Shrek is an ogre……a monster who uses symbolism to compare himself to an onion.

He talks of having layers and how many sides to him, but most people never look far enough. Shrek demonstrates that no matter what the world says about you, you can make a difference.

Indeed, Shrek proves that “it’s what inside that counts.”

The Wanted

Performs on Saturday, April 13th at 8:30 PM in the Studio Theatre

The Wanted fuse vintage folk, blues and country music with rockabilly and rock and roll in a distinctive roots music mash-up – serving up full-throated, full-throttle entertainment replete with slick licks and subtly inflected rhythms.

The band combines intricate harmonies and traditional instrumentation with unique elements such as washboard, bodhran, cajon, and acoustic lap steel guitar.

There’s a small orchestra of instruments here that a mere five musicians manage to deploy with great skill – forging a fresh sound by finding common ground in diverse material.

This is a musical experience that audiences are sure to enjoy.

$44 Regular Seating

Anda Union

Performs on Thursday, April 18th at 8:00 PM

A compelling combination of Mongolian musical styles coalesce into the rich and powerful music of Anda Union.

Hailing from differing ethnic nomadic cultures, the nine-member band unites tribal and musical traditions from all over Inner Mongolia utilizing a range of instruments and vocal throat singing styles in a fusion that would make Genghis Khan proud.

Highlighting instruments like the Morin Hurr (also known as the “Horse Head fiddle”) and the Moadin choir (a reed flute which is played while singing), Anda Union has taken up the fight to keep an age-old culture by increasing awareness of its traditions.
