Extraordinary news! Four giant companies are now hiring individuals with autism to become part of the work force.

1- Microsoft

2- SAP

3- Freddie Mac

4- Walgreens

In previous posts I talked about how SAP company committed to hiring engineers on the autism spectrum for all the qualities, skills, and distinction they enjoy.

Below are some of the qualities individuals with autism are known for:

  • They have an exceptionally good memory.
  • They are rigorous, accurate, meticulous, perfectionist.
  • They enjoy doing tedious and repetitive work.
  • Once they are focused on a task they don’t get distracted.
  • They pay attention to the finest details.


Foster the principle & concept of the importance of having a job (even a volunteer job) in your child from a very early age. It teaches her to be independent, resoponsible, disciplined, and a team-player. No matter how small or simple the job is, it is planting the seeds for a bright future.
