Autism Speaks is committed to becoming a central resource where employers and housing providers can share models and best practices and discover useful resources to help enhance and grow their ventures. In order to encourage the development of greater employment and housing opportunities for individuals with autism as well as corresponding support services, Autism Speaks is hosting these LinkedIn groups to allow interested parties to share information, learn from one another and grow their own networks. These groups will enable employers, housing developers, service providers and individuals with autism and their families to connect and network with one other. All group members are welcome to ask questions and share stories about their successes and challenges in developing employment, housing and supports for adults with autism.
It is our hope that through these groups and other resources for adults, Autism Speaks can be a source of support and information for the autism community and continue the positive momentum created by new and exciting ventures in both the employment and housing arenas in recent years.
