April is National Autism Awareness Month.
Autism, or autism spectrum disorder, refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication, as well as by unique strengths and differences.
80% of people with autism are unemployed or underemployed... 1 in every 68 children is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder... More than half of youth with ASD have no job and no school participation in the first two years after high school.
Spectrum Works, a non-profit agency, addresses this societal concern by hiring and training young adults on the spectrum.
It has created an innovative fundraising campaign called #GoSpectrumBlue.
