“Autism Power is staffed with true advocates who understand individuals with Spectrum Disorders. They have helped my son obtain, retain, and find fulfillment in his job. They recognize that each person is different and may require special accommodations. They work hard to know each individual that they serve and offer reasonable accommodations so that those individuals can gain successful employment. I have never seen my son happier or more proud of himself. Thank you Autism Power for all that you do for the community.”

What We Do:

We identify transition age individuals through schools & case managers. We then incorporate their wants and needs into employment opportunities utilizing the Ziggurat Model. From there, we teach job skills using hands-on experiences for 3 months with a specialized trainer. Once the initial 3 month training period is completed, we continue to cultivate job skills and professional development .

We recognize that everyone on the spectrum will have different needs and we will adapt our program to best fit the needs that we see. Beyond that, we are going to use this opportunity to test new methods of assistance including Augmented Reality!
