Small business owners are the largest employers of adults on the autism spectrum. Go y’all! At the same time, there’s such a huge need for support and training. That’s what we’re here for - to provide you with the tools to help you upstart and become leaders of the workplace and what makes an effective, productive, and accepting workplace.
Around 20% of adults on the autism spectrum are employed. Small businesses are at the fray to make changes in the workforce.
One of the major struggles autistic employees experience is staying employed. Together we can create policies and standards to support maintaining employment.
Adults on the autism spectrum are more likely to be employed if they had prior work experience in high school and college. By working with schools and job coaching programs, we can support a group of employees (ones that more than likely will stay with you).
