One of our vocational rehab service recipients, a person with high-functioning autism, worked for about ten years as a security guard. Throughout this long period, he did not give up on his big dream – to work for a high-tech company in the field in which he acquired professional certification.
Ten years of dreaming, determination, and hope – paid off ?. With the support of his terrific vocational coach, he applied for and landed a full-time job at Origin GPS. He has been working there for a month, loves the job and is flying high. His employer also discovered that it was worthwhile to have him on the team – a hard-working, dedicated and punctual worker. A real win-win situation. It’s wonderful that there are those who dream and others who believe in the dream and help make it come true.
We are proud of you ?
