The TYDE Project aims to improve the employment outcomes of youth with intellectual disabilities or autism who are between the ages of 14 to 18. More specifically, they are implementing an early intervention for youth and their parents/caregivers within BC, through the Tapestry Tool interface.

The TYDE project has created a fully customised version of the tool, which caters both to its unique users and the idiosyncrasies of the intervention. This project is a prime example of how the Tapestry Tool can be highly customised and used in non-post-secondary learning environments.
