Please join us on Tuesday, October 18  at 4 p.m. (EST) for a live chat with Rachel Pollack, Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel of  Job Path  as she answers questions about employment in recognition of October as U.S. Department of Labor’s National Disability Employment Awareness month.
 

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month. Currently, there are far too many adults with autism who are fully capable of succeeding and thriving in the workplace and are unemployed or underemployed. Adults with autism have a wide range of strengths and skills that make them very well-suited and qualified for a variety of jobs. It is time to make employers aware of their potential and expand employment opportunities for adults with autism! 

Happy Holidays from Autism Speaks!

The holidays can be a hectic, stressful time for all families. This time of year can be especially overwhelming for families of individuals with autism. Preparing and planning early for the holidays can help you relieve some of the holiday stress. We have put together some tips and resources to help you ease your stress during the holidays, and enjoy this wonderful time of year!

One of the big challenges we have as an organization is showing the impact we have  across the four pillars of our mission: Science, Family Services, Advocacy and Awareness. In fact, so much is going on that we are going to aggregate some of the most important happenings once a month.
