Autism Helping Autism, Inc. is a 501c3 organization dedicated to helping high functioning youth and young adults on the autism spectrum transition into the world by teaching daily life skills, independence and assisting with job placement in communities utilizing partnerships with local and national companies.
Only 35 percent of young adults with autism attend college and only 55 percent had a job during the first six years after high school. Overall, young people with autism face a greater than 50 percent chance of being unemployed or not attending college when compared to those with other disabilities.
We focus on making the maximum positive effort for our community. Our members and volunteers provide the momentum that helps us affect change. We provide solutions that make a long-lasting difference in the lives of autistic people and the communities where they live.
Autistic people are often misunderstood and underestimated. Whether it's school, work, or just every day interactions, we offer assistance with job searches, resumes, coaching, and interaction with employers if necessary.
We help educate parents, autistic youth and adults seeking advice, prospective employers and HR departments looking to hire autistic people.
In addition, we publish articles of interest and those written by our clients offering perspective.
We offer resources for those needed more information about Autism and other resources available in the community.
