Roadblocks to Employment 

Highly qualified candidates often have difficulty finding meaningful employment due to the social components of the interview process, and the misunderstandings of what autism really is.

Employers struggling to fill open positions are looking for new ways to attract talent. The Autism Employment Network™ is connecting the individual with the employer to create sustainable career opportunities.
