Employers

Autism Works Now! creates job education and awareness for employers that will result in jobs for individuals with autism and related differences.
We believe passionately that we can make a change in the way autism is viewed by spreading the word that individuals with autism bring dignity and know-how to the workplace.

With my son and so many of his peers aging out of school I was so inspired by Temple Grandin and all the awesome presenters/entertainers at the AutismWorks Now event this week. It was held to benefit the pilot program that will create jobs in the Los Angeles area for those with autism and special needs. I loved it when Ed Asner said "They just need jobs!" Eric Garcetti, Mayor of Los Angeles, sent a Tribute Letter stating "This event will spread the word that individuals with autism are employable and bring value, know-how, and dignity to the workplace. Autism Works Now! will address this problem by helping qualified youth with autism or special needs transition into a great job in their chosen career." ~ Julie Wedeen, parent 19 year son on the spectrum
