The Chocolate Spectrum is a micro-enterprise that was founded by Valerie Herskowitz for her son Blake, a 23 year old man with autism, to be able to have a vocational opportunity after his mother exhausted all other possibilities. The goal of The Chocolate Spectrum is not only to provide a purposeful opportunity for Blake, but also to create employment for others on the spectrum. There are currently 4 other adults in the training program. A portion of all sales are donated to autism charities. Below is a Q&A Valerie did with Autism Speaks.
