Employment Partnerships Program
Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center (SARRC) creates partnerships with local and national employers to increase competitive, community-based employment opportunities for adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Nationally, adults with ASD experience low rates of employment, but through the help of our valued employment partners, SARRC is committed to increasing the employment rate among adults with ASD.
SARRC employment partners benefit from:
- A more inclusive and diversified enviroment.
- Access to a growing and untapped workforce of excellent, dependable and long-term employees.
- Recognition as a partner in SARRC’s marketing materials and presentations.
- Opportunity to advocate, communicate and educate our greater community on autism.
- Access to autism awareness trainings to increase efficiency in your organization.
- A work tax credit.
For more information about our Employment Partnerships program, please contact Paige Raetz at PRaetz@autismcenter.org.
