Empowering autistic individuals to enter the workforce 

 

OUR MISSION 

Our mission to empower individuals diagnosed with autism to enter the workforce and participate meaningfully in society. How? By facilitating  mentorship and coaching in occupational and social skills for individuals on the Autism Spectrum Disorder

We are a team of disability advocates who want to start a revolution in the way that society approaches autism. We are a mix of Georgia Tech Undergrad and Master's students,  autistic self-advocates, parents, occupational therapists and university faculty who believe it is time for change. We have teamed up with Autism Self Advocacy of Atlanta, Excel, and the School of Interactive Computing, to make this dream a reality.

She has been on a lifelong path towards advocacy for disability rights and a career driven by her mission to create an inclusive world. Her dream is to bring light to the power of technology to create an inclusive world that is accessible for others who struggle in similar ways that her brother does.
