A couple of days ago Sarah Glaser of Optomen Productions reached out to us to help her find people on the autism spectrum looking for work. We have looked at the issues surrounding autism and employment before so are very happy to help Ms Glaser find suitable people to participate.
Glaser writes “I’m a producer with the TV production company, Optomen Productions. We are the production company behind the show Employable Me on BBC2, where extraordinary job seekers aim to prove that neurological differences should be viewed as assets rather than difficulties in the workplace. With the help of experts who serve as mentors, neurodiverse individuals unlock their hidden talents and find the job that best suits their unique skill sets and strengths.
We are currently developing the show in the US, and are searching for people with ASD who have struggled to find employment and might have interest in being part of the program.”
