June 03, 2015

On May 20th, 2015, Matt and Ed Asner spoke at the Temple Grandin & Friends event in Los Angeles, California at The Nokia Theater about employing individuals with autism. During the event, Autism Works Now - who work to help employ individuals with autism - recognized Matt and Ed Asner for their achievements in the community. Ed Asner, who is famously known for his work in acting, and Matt Asner, who is Autism Speaks Director of Corporate Development, talked about the need to focus on the adults in our community and provide them with meaningful opportunities.

At Autism Speaks we've just launched a new initative called TheSpectrumCareers to help individuals with autism find employment. You can learn more about here and by watching an introductory video on how the program works below:
