80% OF PEOPLE WITH AUTISM ARE UNEMPLOYED

Help us change that!

Why Jobs?

The staggering statistics:

1 in 68 children in the United States has autism.

Approximately eighty percent of individuals with
autism are unemployed or underemployed.

An estimated 500,000 individuals with autism will be
graduating from high school in the next five years.


 

Unfortunately, most supports for individuals with autism disappear after they leave school. Spectrum Works aspires to address this by giving people with autism the opportunity to enjoy productive, rewarding lives via pathways to employment.

One of the most significant impacts of employment is that individuals with autism can become more self-sufficient and contribute to society rather than being dependent on society and others to support their basic needs.
