America is about to face an enormous crisis involving people with developmental and hidden disabilities. These young adults are aging out of the school system at an alarming rate, and most of them are ill-equipped to seek employment and integrate into community life. Here are some daunting stats from Autism Speaks and Disability Scoop…

  • The unemployment rate stands at 90%
  • Every 20 minutes an autism diagnosis is given to a parent in the U.S.
  • 172% increase in autism diagnosis in the last 10 years
  • Costs in the U.S. for autism treatments//care is appoximately $90 billion pers year and is expected to more that double over the next five years

But the Founders of “non-Pareil Institute” have a remarkable vision to address these needs. They are researching and testing measures that identify the strengths, interests, and skill levels of adults with autism. Young people with autism are discovering an outlet for their interests, including an astounding marketability for their skills – watch the video and be amazed.
