A few answered questions about our center

Posted by on Friday, April 26, 2019 in News.

Recently, an individual reached out to us with some questions. While answering these, we wondered if others out there may have similar questions about us, so we’re posting them here for everyone to see:

How much is the tuition of the program? We’re trying to help people find innovations, programs, and supports that will help them match their strengths and passions to sustainable, meaningful employment, while doing research to better understand what works and what doesn’t. As such, we don’t charge any fees. Our work is funded through a number of generous endowments.

Do you take individuals who have other issues alongside with Autism such as support for emotional issues? That is a wonderful question. As we’re looking for ways to help neurodiverse populations, we expand our search when we encounter such questions as this. Although our main focus is autism, we take the long view, and ultimately we’re looking towards neurodiversity as a whole, and any program that may be of benefit to any individual, well, we want that program to be available to whomever it helps. Emotional issues are something a number of people on the spectrum struggle with, so it’s one of the factors that goes into our efforts.

Are you still accepting applications for fall of 2019? We do not require applications for meeting with us, and there are no deadlines nor timetables. If you’re a neurodiverse individual who’s looking for help finding a job, we’re looking for ways to help you. If you have a particular issue, we’re happy to point you to a resource or project that may help.

    I have a 24 year old son who has been diagnosed with brain damage due to loss of oxygen during severe seizures. His seizures are under control now with medication. He was tested several years ago and they said he is high functioning Asperger but that they could not state that because of the trauma of the seizures where the hospital documented he had oxygen loss. I would really like to get him tested and to try to find ways to help him become more independent. He is a welder and is having a difficult time finding a job. He is open to changing career paths or going back to college. His main problem is he cannot answer questions on the spot other than yes, no or I don’t know so in job interviews he fails terribly and interviewers think he is mad or doesnt want the job because of his stoic look that they think he is not interested. Where can I get him more help? I also want to get him tested again to understand if he does have Asperger.

    Hi Jeannie,

    I’d be happy to meet with either/both of you. Our program manager, Colette, can help find a time/date on our respective calendars.
