Things to Know About Autism and Employment

It’s a concerning statistic that over 80% of autistic adults in British Columbia alone are either unemployed or underemployed, where their hours and pay don’t match their skills and experiences.

This change in attitude from some of the biggest players in the economy is starting to trickle down to smaller organizations, so it’s to examine if your company is ready to harness the power of autism.
