The Autism Society of the Greater Capital Region, New York is a not-for-profit organization that serves people living with autism in the Greater Capital District and their families.
Our vision is a society where all individuals on the autism spectrum are fully participating members of our community.
This is the impact that employment can have for individuals who have faced barriers to employment due to their disability. And this is why the Autism Society of the Greater Capital Region created Gig Works to change the future for individuals with autism by helping with new approaches to employment. There will be 500,000 adults on the autism spectrum aging into adulthood over the next 10 years. Yet a whopping 85% of college grads affected by autism are unemployed, compared to the national unemployment rate of 4.5%. Where will they work? Right here in the Capital Region and all over NY!!! A big thank you to #gigworks#Thinkdifferentlyny#puzzlescafe#integrateautismemploymentadvisors#nysid#pineridgeindustries#employmentsupportprofessionals and many more who are determined to bring successful employment opportunities to our communities! #AutismWorks...
