In preparation for my panel later this week I’ve been combing the interwebs looking to see what’s out there in terms of assisting autistic adults with job placement.
And then I have to take breaks because it’s not great.
I’ve been reaching out to autism organizations that claim to help autistic people get jobs. From one organization I got an email setting up a one on one meeting to talk (yay). From another I got a boiler plate email saying I would have to sign up for a waiting list for some acronym organization with no link or further instructions (meh).
From Autism Speaks I got this, which is the most Austism Speaks thing you could possibly get. A solicitation to purchase a blue bag with a puzzle piece. The blue represents young boys. The puzzle piece represents what’s wrong or missing with autistic children. The bag represents how Autism Speaks loots a big issue for personal gain.
One thought on “Autism Speaks Speaks for itself”
