And you need a diverse workforce that drives innovation, competitive advantage, and organizational effectiveness. 

Austism2Work helps pair qualified candidates on the autism spectrum with carefully matched jobs in IT and business operations. We manage not only the recruiting, selection and training of autistic team members, but also the cultural integration, on-the-job supervision, skill development and performance management.

Finding the right people for the right job.

Autism2Work creates meaningful employment and workforce training for people on the autism spectrum. While the program supports individuals interested in the IT field who are eager to enter a work environment, it also supports the workplace itself, tailoring our unique employment model to your specific culture and business needs.

Make your workplace a win-win.

By tapping the potential of a new talent pool, you can accomplish both your business goals and your workplace diversity goals. Let Autism2Work help you implement the required support structure to recruit, select and train the right people for your team. We can support team members on the client site or host the work at one of CAI’s locations.

Boost meaningful workplace diversity and boost productivity.

Many individuals on the autism spectrum share particular strengths, including attention to detail, a preference for repetitive work, a high level of concentration, perseverance, and superior problem-solving and pattern recognition abilities. Under the right conditions, individuals on the autism spectrum can be highly effective at work. In fact, studies and our own experience have shown that the performance of autistic individuals in certain functions often exceeds that of their neurotypical peers.
