Service Description

The Problem: The unemployment rate is 84% for persons with autism or other developmental disabilities. Job interviews, which are stressful for everyone, are a major barrier to employment for these applicants. People with ASD or other developmental disabilities often struggle to communicate effectively, misread social cues, and struggle coping with anxiety during the interview process.

The Tool: Developed specifically for persons with disabilities and using the very latest in virtual reality technologies, ViTA DMA software and curriculum is a powerful tool to improve job interviewing skills.

ViTA DMF is a software and curriculum designed by a team of experts from DMF and the USC Institute for Creative Technologies representing multiple disciplines, including: special education, disability transition services, engineering, virtual reality, cognitive science, game development and software design.

ViTA DMF is a project of The Dan Marino Foundation. Located in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, The Dan Marino Foundation has a long and distinguished track record of helping young adults with autism or other developmental disabilities transition from school to life. The Foundation operates Marino Campus, a 10-month post-secondary school providing a solid bridge to employment for young adults with ASD or other developmental challenges.
