4 Major Companies Are Tackling The Autism Unemployment Epidemic

Learning 4 Major Companies Are Tackling The Autism Unemployment Rate Gave Me a Bit of Hope for Nick's future. 

Thank God we live in a country where private industry can focus on social good, and make an impact in our communities. Thank you Microsoft, Walgreens, Freddie Mac and SAP! 

We have a Walgreens down the street where Nick get's his prescriptions. They are like an extension of our family, always asking how he is doing, giving him compliments. This makes me wonder, maybe Nick can work there one day! 





For adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder, employment prospects are often disappointingly few and far between.According to a 2013 report published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, the underemployment starts early. Just over 50 percent of young adults with ASD worked for pay outside the home within eight years after they finished high school. And when they did, the work was part-time and low-paying more often than not. Only about 20 percent of young adults with ASD worked full-time at either a current or a most-recent job, and their average pay was just $8.10 an hour.
