The opportunities of exploring this untapped resource are significant, especially in light of the severe worldwide shortage of IT talent. Early adapters to working with autistic individuals in the IT field will have an advantage over companies who delay. The sooner an organization internalizes the experiences of working alongside people with autism, the sooner they will reap the rewards.

Employing people with disabilities, particularly people with autism in STEM-related jobs, such as IT, is garnering greater public attention and acceptance. We are a force in the BC market to normalize hiring and retaining individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities. We are also working to change policies, procedures, and attitudes to help make that happen.

At Focus, we are your conduit to realizing the benefits of working with people on the spectrum.
