Mission Statement

Enable competitive employment for adults with Asperger Syndrome and high-functioning Autism through a hoistic support services model.

Description

Autism Works brings competitive employment - and therefore independence and dignity - to adults with autism. The organization brings career and life skills services to adults and transition-aged youth with Asperger Syndrome and high-functioning Autism, moving them toward full employment and independence. By supporting these talented, valuable people, Autism Works reduces the overall cost of social services and creates a substantial net gain to employers and society by helping these individuals contribute positively to business results and the national economy.

Autistic-specific services are required for the adult population to create paths of achievement that honor individual intellectual capabilities through competitive employment, with appropriate coaching services and life services in place to sustain employment. Success is measured by the individual's ability to manage employment over time, and Autism Works maintains a lifetime plan (LSP - Lifetime Sustainability Plan) that helps each individual professionally, socially, physically, psychologically and financially at each life transition to ensure self-defined success.

By managing the client holistically, we help manage the issues that are paralyzing and lead to job loss, thereby providing sustenance and success. And, by collaborating with related organizations the resulting collective is greater than the sum of the organizations operating independently.
