In 16 weeks a Uniquely Abled Academy teaches young adults with high functioning autism to be entry-level CNC machining operators and provides job placement support.
Because the words we use shape the way we think, when looking through the lens of the word “disabled,” we tend to think about what’s missing in a person. As a result, we often miss seeing the unique capabilities these people have. The goal of The Uniquely Abled Project is to shift the paradigm of thinking from “disabled” to “uniquely abled”.
Recognizing people as uniquely abled can make a significant difference in the lives of millions of people, in the cost of government, and in the ability of people and organizations to thrive. That’s why we are passionate about transforming the lives of uniquely abled through meaningful employment.
