John Elder Robison has the TCS Auto Program in Springfield, MA.* And Chicago-based Aspiritech has done it for software testers. I’d love to see this trend of putting people with autism spectrum disorder to work go viral — across all business sectors. Because everyone on the spectrum has something to offer. They just may need some support.

* This is a satellite campus of Tri County Schools, part of Northeast Center for Youth and Families [NCYF] of Easthampton, MA. NCYF is a private nonprofit corporation serving young people and families with emotional and developmental challenges. The TCS Auto Program is located in John Elder Robison’s Springfield Automotive Complex right next to Robison Service.
