Since 1965, the Autism Society in partnership with our over 100 local and state affiliates has supported millions of individuals and families impacted by autism. The Autism Society envisions individuals and families living with autism are able to maximize their quality of life, are treated with the highest level of dignity, and live in a society in which their talents and skills are appreciated and valued.
The Autism Society works with national employers throughout the nation to help them advance the hiring and retention of workers with an autism diagnosis. The Autism Society works with companies and other entities to become autism friendly, meaning their products or services are responsive to the needs of an individual with an autism diagnosis, they promote and encourage the hiring of individuals with an autism diagnosis, and they support the needs of their employees who have children or other family members with an autism diagnosis.http://www.autism-society.org/
