With over 150 people in attendance, informative and moving presentations from EMC, UMass and Hanover Insurance, as well as the exciting launch of Students For Higher – Rising Up for Autism, there is a great deal of momentum following the 2nd Annual Autism Summit.
HMEA is committed to its goal of making Central Massachusetts THE PLACE to live with children with Autism. As Students for Higher continues mobilizing students to work as ABA therapists for kids with Autism, we will work diligently to decrease the number of families awaiting critical services.
But, that is only one part of creating such a community. It is clear to our agency that in order to live somewhere, you must work somewhere. And, in order to work somewhere as a family with Autism, you need to be part of a culture of openness and acceptance.
It is with that, we invite you to join the Central Mass Taskforce on Autism and The Workplace. HMEA welcomes employers, human resource professionals, providers, policy makers, parents of children with autism, and other interested stakeholders to advance strategies and solutions that help the growing number of employees who have children with autism succeed in the workplace.
Let’s keep the momentum going. We can do this!
