    Applied Behaviour Analysis is the basis of medically necessary treatments for individuals with autism. Although research for the effectiveness of such programmes is abundant for pre-school and school-age children, data on the use of behaviour analytic methods with adults are still scarce. This is the case especially in countries with a few Board Certified Behavior Analysts and behaviour-analytic service-delivery settings and of course for inclusive employment settings.
    In FuturoSchool, Paris, one of the few behaviour analytic providers in France, some of the students that we have served throughout the years are now full-grown adults and therefore need to be included in a professional environment. For this, a partnership was developed with a retail company where students were trained by store employees in everyday tasks under the direct supervision of staff trained in behaviour analysis including a BCBA.
    Two case studies will be discussed in detail illustrating progress towards independence, barriers that need to be accounted for and the overarching principles in our endeavours to include young adults in mainstream work settings.
