Who we are
Neurodiversity in the Workplace places and supports people with Autism (ASD) into high-level jobs for which they are qualified, but could not previously access. This initiative has led the process of identifying, preparing, and supporting neurodiverse individuals for numerous organizations over the past 5 years, created a structure that has been implemented within these organizations, and successfully placed people with ASD into career-focused positions.
The Neurodiversity in the Workplace Initiative sheds light on the possibilities that workforce diversity can offer, not just to employers, but to their communities as well.
Since 2014, we’ve developed a network that instills professional training for people with Autism and supports more inclusive hiring practices for companies across the nation. Our program is structured to work with you to:
roles within the workplace appropriate for our candidates
and educate every candidate to prepare them for long-term careers
your staff and new employee(s) through an ongoing program designed to maximize potential
