With up to 90% of adults with autism under or unemployed and over half a million autistic individuals moving into adulthood, Autism Society is dedicated to advancing the opportunity for individuals to have meaningful, gainful employment.
For this reason, Autism Society has created a digital toolkit of resources, information, referrals and supports to help autistic individuals and their families navigate an ever-evolving job market. In addition, we’ve highlighted just a few of the successful employment programs and services offered by our affiliates.
