A family's story

Spreading a Little Hope

As I was reading the paper this morning, I came across this piece. It gave me some hope, and has a very encouraging message. I am pleased to see that more companies are taking a chance with individuals with autism and other intellectual disabilities. They are training them, and are finding what we already know–individuals with autism and other intellectual disabilities are hard workers, and we can all learn something from them. The investment to get them up and running in a job is not that much compared to other expenses, and really, well, a gainfully employed individual is a bonus for society…and for the individual’s self-esteem.

Please take a look…it is worth it!!

Don’t be afraid to hire those with disabilities

  1. I wish I could read the story but it would not let me read the story without signing up for some service. I’ve seen some stories before about start-up companies employing ASD diagnosed people in both computer tech jobs and on a farm. It’s heartwarming and a bit scary at the same time to see people trying but so few and far between. In a perfect world, wouldn’t it be nice if no one considered the disability at all and just hired people who could do the job that would include ASD and non-ASD alike? Maybe, I’m just a dreamer but I believe that someday that will happen…
