Bid to Create Job Opportunities for People With Autism and Aspergerís Syndrome

A UK-based social enterprise has announced that it is planning to conduct a program that will match the specific skills of people with autism and Asperger's syndrome with the creative industries. Specialisterne Northern Ireland's plan is to link people with high functioning autism with employers.

More than 50 digital content and film production companies will be attending. Young people and adults on the autistic spectrum from across Northern Ireland and university staff are to take part. The audience at the Skainos Centre in east Belfast will gain insight into the abilities of people with autism to organize and make systems.

Specialisterne has traditionally helped people with autism get jobs in IT and software development. The initiative is the final and flagship event of Creativity Month in Northern Ireland.

Autism and Asperger syndrome are part of a range of conditions known as autistic spectrum disorders (ASD). They affect the way the brain processes information. Since its launch in April 2014, Specialisterne NI has identified 120 people who are on the autistic spectrum and who have the skills and talent for IT and creative roles.
