The mission of Asperger Works is twofold: to help adults with Asperger’s Syndrome (AS) lead productive lives through gainful employment and to educate employers about the positive side of hiring people with Asperger’s Syndrome.
Our vision is that through our efforts, the Merrimack Valley area of Massachusetts and New Hampshire, and indeed the whole country, will become populated with adults on the Spectrum who are able to live productive lives fully employed without fear of discriminatory behavior among employers.
Educate employers regarding the best ways to leverage the strengths of people with AS and provide a work environment that sets up the autistic worker for success
Develop programs that help adults with AS find fulfilling work such as employment readiness training and related support (i.e. job coach)
Assist people with AS stay employed and advance in their careers
