Employment Priorities

With unemployment at 85 percent (at this time) for those with autism seeking gainful employment, we intend to hire those with autism with priority over those who are neurotypical. This is part of our mission, and we feel a critical statement of our commitment to the cause of autism acceptance.

Equally, we feel it our patriotic duty and civic responsibility to hire veterans where possible to fill vacancies not filled by the autistic.
