Encircle Technologies is passionate about serving students with autism who are interested in building technology skills for future employment. Employment and education stats tell a dire story which is why we need help changing this story:
- Less than 40% of adults with autism are employed, with the majority working part-time with no benefits (Autism Speaks).
- 60% of parents and students report that vocational training is the highest need for those on the autism spectrum (National Longitude Transition Study 2).
- The cost of Medicaid expenditures in 2008 is over 43 million dollars to serve individuals with autism who do not have competitive employment.
This story needs to change.
With your help, it can.
